Part of ArtVenture Children's Art Classes

Art Explorers, Ages 5-7:
An opportunity for young children to explore the McMichael’s collection and grounds and to play and create. While basic art techniques will be introduced, the goal of this class is to encourage a sense of experimentation and artistic adventure.

Art Seekers (Youth 1), Ages 8-12:
This program focuses on exploration of the medium and development of basic art making skills. After examining the masterpieces from the McMichael collection, children will have the opportunity to discover the medium-of-the day through step by step instruction. To foster visual literacy development and to familiarize children with the gallery environment, studio activities will be complemented by gallery workshops and behind -the-scene discovery tours.

Art Apprentices (Youth 2)*, Ages 8-12:
This studio program is offered to children who have had previous art making exposure and will emphasize drawing and painting skill development, knowledge of composition, principles of design, and use of professional artist materials. While polishing the skills, the aim of this very special program is to stimulate creativity and to foster the love of art.

*Please note: proof of two years of previous art instruction or a small portfolio including one two dimensional (painting, print or collage) and one three dimensional work will be required to participate in this class.
