Young artists combine skills in drawing and painting with new discoveries in a variety of arts media and arts processes – monoprints, linocuts, photography, papers, fabrics, metal and more. Students will enhance skills, build talent, inspire the creation of unique works of art, and enjoy opportunities with a variety of art materials.

All of our students explore the 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, and glean inspiration from famous artists throughout history.

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.

Faculty member Andrea Thompson is an Honors graduate from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education. She has been the Arts Education Coordinator at the Michener since 2015. One parent noted, “Andrea has built confidence in my children, and made the class enjoyable and exciting. We appreciate her dedication and devotion to them and to the whole program. We feel truly blessed to have her as a teacher.”
