Studio Explorers: Celebrate Friendship I (Saturdays)

Saturdays, Jan 30 – Feb 20
10:00 am
11:00 am
Class will not meet on Saturday, November 28, Thanksgiving weekend.

Join a small group of budding artists and a MAM Teaching Artist for our In-Person Winter Studio Explorers class. This season’s theme, celebrate friendship, cultivates kindness and community as kids create art inspired by playful companionship. From invisible playmates to beloved animals, and favorite games to acts of kindness, kids will enjoy making friends artistically!  Each 4 week session will feature different projects.

This 4-week short course will meet in our spacious Leir Hall following all COVID-19 guidelines, including mask-wearing and social distancing, for a safe, social, creative experience.

 Classes are limited to 12 children who will be spaced 6-feet apart and provided with an individual Creativity Kit of carefully curated mixed-media art materials. In the event that the museum must close, the class will continue online via Zoom, and students will take their Creativity Kit home, so they will have all the supplies they need continue to develop their artistic skills.
