Children’s Art Classes at the Plumbing Museum

The Plumbing Museum is offering studio art lessons for home schooled children in our community. Designed as an outreach project of the Manoog Family Artist Residency, the lessons will give students an opportunity to use materials and processes that are not available in the home or school setting. Art lessons will include experimenting with painting, drawing, and collage using different art mediums such as acrylic paints, watercolor, pastels, and papier mâché.

Classes focus specifically on art skills and concepts suitable for 7-12 year olds.

No painting or drawing experience necessary.
