Children join an adult caregiver in this popular intergenerational program with Museum-inspired lessons and art activities that inspire verbal development, visual awareness, dynamic conversation, imagination, creativity, confidence, and self-expression. Both adult caregivers and children have the opportunity to create works of art in this program. Student artwork is exhibited in the Art in Bloom Education Gallery exhibition in April.
Projects are not repeated throughout the year. Most students attend for consecutive seasons, and many attend for several years.
Individualized attention, small classes, frequent gallery tours, and master teachers are hallmarks of the Michener Art Museum’s exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and art materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. The Michener’s permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms in new ways. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year. All art classes at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
