Saturday Morning Discovery

Saturday Morning Discovery is a free, introductory art experience designed for children ages 5-17.  Sessions take place on Saturday mornings during the school year and provide family fun and learning by awakening a passion for art in children and their parents.

Children have the opportunity to work with artist-teachers in a wide variety of media, including ceramics, drawing and painting, pinhole photography, silk-screening, stained glass, origami, and seasonal activities. Parents and guardians often work alongside their child.

Each month-long session meets from 9:30am – 11:30am on Saturdays. Due to the popularity of this fun and interactive program, advance reservations are required.

For more information, call the Office of the Registrar at 210.200.8217.
