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.

Michener classes keep Art at the Heart of Education with 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.

Preregistration preference for winter and spring art classes is given to students of the current fall session. Winter art class registration begins November 15th; spring art class registrations begins February 15th.

Faculty member Ruth Anderson holds a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She has completed postgraduate work in fine arts, art education, special education, and school administration. Ruth received Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Art Educator Award in 1983. She is currently the Director of Arts Education at the Michener. One parent noted, “Ruth has a natural gift with children that grows from her heart. She is patient, respectful, creative, and inspiring. Her classrooms are successfully nurturing our next generation of artists.”
