Fall Quarter First Saturday Activities Schedule

October 5: Salt Painting
Create a vibrant and textured work of art using glue, salt, and watercolors.  Starting with a black piece of paper, you will be able to draw a design with a glue bottle – think swirls, zig-zags, and squiggles – then add salt and watercolors to see your lines vibrantly come to life!

November 2: Day of the Dead
Come create art inspired by the Mexican celebration Day of the Dead! Design your own sugar skull or make a beautiful paper bouquet of marigolds. Don’t forget to stop on the stairs and admire Billy Hassel’s painting, Game of Chance, inspired by the holiday!

December 7: Winter Landscape
Join us in the studio and create your own unique winter landscape. Explore art and nature through pastels and watercolors. Design your winter wonderland then add some animal friends playing in the snow!

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
