Young Artists: Art & Nature (ages 8 – 10)

Monday, July 17 – Friday, July 21, 2017

9 AM – 4 PM

Students spend a week investigating the connections between art and nature through the mediums of sculpture, drawing, painting, and installation art as well as through the close interpretation of works in the Museum’s collection. In this Young Artists class, each lesson is based on works from the permanent collection that lead us to find how nature effects artists, how artists depict nature, and how our creative voices can be expressed through nature! Cost: $250. Click here to register.
