Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2018 are invited to register for this class.

Students will be introduced to the basics of hand sewing while creating small projects focused on learning new techniques and processes in sewing. They will learn basic stitches, as well as embellishment and embroidery techniques. Students with no sewing experience are welcome, and students with previous hand sewing experience will build on their skills and be challenged by new information and inspirations.

The Michener Art Museum offers the only art classes in Bucks County where learners of all ages experience Museum exhibitions as an ongoing part of their arts education. Discussions and experiences in the galleries and sculpture garden inspire students to create original works of art in response to what they see. Individualized attention, small classes, and master teachers are hallmarks of exceptional programs that combine learning new skills with opportunities for creative expression and the development of a personal style. Students work in an environment rooted in inspired and supportive instruction, meaningful gallery experiences, personal observation, and imagination. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year. All art classes at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
