Discover Art classes will help children enhance their drawing and painting abilities, develop new talents, inspire confidence and creativity, encourage the production of unique works of art, and provide opportunities to master a variety of art materials. Students explore Michener galleries weekly, and use works in the exhibitions as take-off points for their own art making; they also work from photographs, observation, and imagination. Students will use pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels, acrylic paint, and sculpture materials 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.
