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.
