Summer 2021 Outreach Round Up

We eased back into face-to-face programming this summer with four SOLD OUT camps. It was wonderful to host young artists at the museum again. Their creative energy breathed so much life back into the building!

And it was equally wonderful making art with community partners offsite again. We cherish our partnership with Hawk Houston Youth Enrichment Center and it was thrilling to be able to create with their students this summer!

In addition to our face-to-face offerings, we assembled and dispersed over 2000 art kits throughout the Wiregrass region to artists of all ages. Each kit contained an activity booklet with instructions for four different art activities plus all the supplies needed to create the projects. We also created quick instructional videos to accompany the kits that we wanted to share with you. Click on the titles below to view.

We want to extend our sincere thanks to The Wiregrass Foundation for funding our summer outreach programming. Because of The Wiregrass Foundation, we are able to provide high quality art experiences each summer to young (and not so young) artists throughout our region who don’t have consistent exposure to the arts. Ensuring lifelong learning is an important part of our mission at WMA and we are so thankful that we can continue to provide such experiences in these uncertain times. One this is for certain though, art is for everyone and WMA is too! We hope to see you at the museum soon!
