Introduce your budding artist to the Museum and all the materials that help artists to create! In each class, we will focus on a different material used in artworks on view in the exhibition Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now and the Mississippi Invitational exhibition and engage the children AND their caregivers in gallery activities, hands-on art projects, art games, and books. We will use an array of sensory media, as well as air-dry clay, washable paint, paper, pencil, crayons, glue, and more. On the last day of class, we will showcase our work for parents and caretakers and have a celebration at the Museum’s splash pad. And remember to always bring your imagination and DRESS FOR MESS!
