Students will create wearable art, such as earrings, rings, necklaces and more, using traditional and non-traditional materials. Using wire, metal, fabric, natural fibers, beads, plastic, and recycled/repurposed materials, students will learn jewelry-making skills. Please let us know if your ears are NOT pierced so that materials can be ordered accordingly; email athompson@michenerartmuseum.org.

Students entering grades 4 through 9 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 Mosaics 2D and 3D class with the afternoon Jewelry Making 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.
