Students 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.

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.
Winter 2018 sessions begin the week of January 14 and run through the week ending March 10.
Spring 2018 sessions begin the week of March 18 and run through the week ending May 19.
