Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2018 are invited to register for this class.

Use your love for color and design while creating art on fabric. Create banners, scarves, t-shirts, and more while painting on silk, learning tie-dye, batik, and other textile arts forms. Please bring a white cotton pre-washed t-shirt on the first day of class.

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.

Faculty member Cara Alderfer graduated from Millersville University with a BSE in Art and has her MAEd in Fine Art Metals from Arcadia University. She has worked in the Central Bucks School District since 2003, at Barclay, Doyle, Gayman, Groveland, Buckingham, Titus, Bridge Valley, Warwick, Jamison, Cold Spring and Kutz Elementary Schools. She has a strong background in musical theater, performing arts, and vocal performance. Mrs. Alderfer began as a Michener adjunct faculty member in 2006.
