Being five is an exciting and unique time in the development of children. In this unique program, just for five year olds, we’ll explore the Museum and art studio in a new way – created just for them! They will tour the galleries, engaging in age appropriate art activities and learning experiences. Students will discover new and exciting art materials as they produce original works in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and collage.
Five year olds are invited to register for this class.
Students provide their own peanut free snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of class on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
Faculty member Megan Miller has a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education from Kutztown University, as well as a Masters of Education from Concordia University. She has worked with the Michener since 2006, first as a college intern, then as a teaching assistant, and currently as an adjunct staff member. She teaches a variety of classes during the summer including Fabulous Fives, All About Art, and Drawing and Painting. She is also an art teacher in the Pennsbury School District, teaching at the middle school level. Her large scale paintings are inspired by nature; she works primarily in oils and watercolors. “Megan always encourages my son, and listens to his concerns, excitement and questions. She is playful and funny but also patient and understanding. She’s the reason he’s loved the Michener Art Camps, and we scour the brochure looking for her name when we sign up.”
