Kids Love Getting Creative!

We offer several programs during school vacations and in the summer for kids to enjoy.

Summer Art Programs

Artful Mornings

Our summer art program, Artful Mornings, takes place in the museum’s large art studio room, which provides ample space to spread art supplies out and get creative. Artful Mornings run from Tuesday-Thursday during the summer months from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.

Drop off and Pick up

All workshops meet in the large multi-purpose space, the Key Cultural Center. Your child must be accompanied by an adult to and from the classes.  Doors to the program typically open 10 minutes before the program begins.  A sign-in and out sheet will be at the front desk for you to check your child in/out.

Refund Policy

If needed refunds will be issued for a cancellation, however, registrants will be responsible for the Eventbrite processing fees which are non-refundable

In the event the Albany Institute must cancel a class, a full refund will be issued.

Vacation Art Break

The Albany Institute offers art programs during December, February, and April recesses from school.  In these programs, students will have the opportunity to explore the Institute's galleries. Students will be inspired by master and contemporary artists throughout history as well as experiment with a variety of mediums, tools, and techniques while examining and applying the elements and principles of design.
