Programs


Print Making

School age children and up experiment with an array of printmaking techniques or simply choose one to explore in depth.  Participants learn about positive and negative space through silkscreen printing or relief printing using unexpected materials and techniques, depending on participants’ interest and age.

Exploring Electricity

Explore the basics of electronics and circuitry with motors and batteries.  Children transform repurposed everyday items into unique, motorized inventions.

Clay Creations

Create decorative artworks using clay. Children explore the material, sculpt individual works and finish their piece with various painting or finishing techniques. Teaching Artists complete the firing process at the Museum and pieces are ready for pick-up at the Museum within one month of our program.
