Back by popular demand! Using tape, paper, plastic, wire, fabrics, yarns, beads, magazines, clay, and found objects, students will create beautiful unique jewelry pieces (necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings) including repurposed found object jewelry holders.  Students who took Jewelry Making  last year will create new artwork in this class! Please let us know if your child’s ears are NOT pierced so that materials can be ordered accordingly; email athompson@michenerartmuseum.org.

Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2019 are invited to register for this class.

Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and 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.

Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Jewelry Making class with the afternoon Making Mosaics class, and Lunch Option 5.

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.
