Instructor: Andrea Thompson
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.
