General Info

Mia’s youth classes provide challenging hands-on art experiences that are enriched and inspired by works of art in the museum’s collection and special exhibitions. Led by qualified art instructors, museum classes offer young people a broad cultural view of art history, as well as fascinating insights into artists, techniques, and styles.

In the galleries, students spend time learning directly from masterpieces. In the studio, students develop basic art skills, experiment with an array of artistic mediums, and gain confidence through exercises that foster self-expression. Creative problem solving and art-making activities are integrated into each class. Selected artworks by students are displayed in the Community Commons Gallery.

Scholarships are made possible by the Friends of the Institute through proceeds from Art in Bloom 2016.
