Saturday Morning Discovery

Saturday Morning Discovery is a free, introductory art experience designed for children. From September through May sessions take place on two-consecutive Saturday mornings during the school year and provide family fun and collaborative learning by awakening a passion for art in children and their parents.

Children have a hands-on opportunity to work with artist-teachers in a wide variety of media, including ceramics, drawing, and painting, printmaking, origami, weaving, seasonal art, and more. Parents and guardians work alongside their child during the activities. Activities are geared to ages 5 – 14, Jan and Feb feature activities specific to older teens 14 – 17
