Zoos are all about animals! From small mammals and great cats to elephants and reptiles – from endangered species to animal conservation – from scales to feathers – from Asia to the Amazon – there is something for everyone at the zoo. Learn about animal keepers, ape think tanks, cages, and safaris. Draw, paint, print, and sculpt your way through an amazing week, learning about zoos and zoo animals.
The Michener Art Museum offers the only art classes in Bucks County where learners of all ages experience Museum exhibitions as an ongoing part of their arts education. Discussions and experiences in the galleries and sculpture garden inspire students to create original works of art in response to what they see. Individualized attention, small classes, and master teachers are hallmarks of exceptional programs that combine learning new skills with opportunities for creative expression and the development of a personal style. Students work in an environment rooted in inspired and supportive instruction, meaningful gallery experiences, personal observation, and imagination. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year. All art classes at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
