Creative fun, all year-long!
The Worcester Art Museum Studio Art Program has a long history of introducing children of all ages to the world of art. Our young students explore the Museum, try new materials, and benefit from working with professional artists and educators. As they build their skills, they gain a sense of confidence and a deeper appreciation for art. All youth, not just those with perceived talent, benefit from our programs.
Worcester Art Museum Classes
Ages 3-5 w/adult
These classes introduce young children to art materials and new experiences through studio activities, games, and stories. Required parent / guardian participation reinforces communication skills and assists children in developing motor skills. Shared and individual activities help children gain self-confidence as adults model life-long learning habits. These classes require one adult (guardian) per child enrolled.
Students are exposed to a broad range of ideas and art forms through medium-specific classes such as sculpture and painting, as well as through theme-based classes. Emphasis is on self-expression and experimentation.
Ages 8-10 & 11-13
Confidence in creativity and technical skills is strengthened through medium-specific courses. Projects focus on developing observational and technical skills as well as furthering the student’s ability to think independently.
Projects and critiques continue to help develop technical skills and support the student’s ability to make personal decisions about expression, style, and content. Assistance in developing a portfolio or selecting a class is available.
