As I write, an enthusiastic group of teen artists is working away in the Museum’s classroom, immersed in the creation of unique hand made books of all sizes, shapes, and designs with gifted director of education, Melinda Georgeson. This is just one of the first in a series of upcoming workshops designed to connect teens with the world of art this spring and summer, from traditional media to cutting edge digital animation.

We hope that you’ll join us for these upcoming art workshops. Our talented, nurturing educators will spark creativity and imagination, and help teens of all ages to advance their artistic abilities.
