Kids Studio Class

Giant Garden Geometry

Best for ages 6 – 10

Bring your curiosity and leave inspired! Museum educators and local teaching artists team up to build meaningful connections with contemporary art, followed by offbeat art “experiments” in our non-traditional classroom your kids will love! No experience is necessary, and all materials are supplied. Our Kids Studio classes are designed to build confidence in creative risk taking with unique materials and processes rather than learning formal techniques for art-making. Along their journey, students learn how to express ideas, solve problems constructively and transform imaginative concept into design. Class size is limited. Art smock provided, please wear comfortable clothes that may get stained.

$5/members, $10/non-member child.
