    Art for All

    April 9th,16th, 23rd, & 30th : Landscape Collage

    Join us to be inspired by lovely landscape scenes like those of the Hudson River School painters.  We’ll form our own landscape masterpieces by using different hues of colored paper to create a tonal effect that fades from dark to light.

    SUMMER ART PROGRAM

    Ages 6-12

    Join us to dabble in printmaking, painting, sculpture, book arts, and more as we make beautiful pieces of art! In these weekly, three-day morning programs, children will create vibrant works of art inspired by our summer exhibitions and our permanent collections.

    Ages 3-5

    In this program, parents and children explore the museum's galleries, read stories, have a great time with sensory play exploration, and create exciting art projects!
