Youth Summer Art Program

ChildrenYouth Summer Art Program

The Summer Art Program is open to children, grades 5 to 8, ages 10 to 14 years. Each week-long session focuses on a different art form and combines exciting hands-on art making with museum tours, art history discussion, and connecting real works of art with the day's activity. Professional artists and educators will direct creative and age-appropriate activities using a variety of media in the museum's Parker Gallery and in the adjacent Whistler Park. Local visiting artists will come to talk about their work in the week's featured medium.

The class fee for any of the sessions below (including materials) is $165 for one week per student. Students can participate in one, two, three or all four weeks. The program fee includes all materials, as well as a Whistler painting smock. There is an early registration discount of 10% if you sign up by June 1, 2014. (Mail registrations must be postmarked by this date) Please have your child bring a non-refrigerated snack and drink each day. No food will be provided. Scholarships are available for talented children in the community. For more information, call 978-452-7641.
