First Saturday Family Day

Saturdays are the perfect day for children and families to explore WMA together! A free come-and-go art activity for kids of all ages is offered the first Saturday of every month. All supplies are provided and no pre-registration is required. Each First Saturday will feature a different project. Special additional activities included some Saturdays. Gallery and garden activities are available, too! Call the museum at 334-794-3871 or email more information.

Fall First Saturday Activities Schedule

October 6: Fabric Dyeing
Learn how to dye fabric using different resist techniques. Guests will create their own unique folds in the fabric, then dye it using indigo and other natural dyes.

November 3: Circle Weavings
During November’s event, visitors will learn how to create a circle weaving on a reed loom.

December 1: Constellation Lumiere
December’s First Saturday activity will give guests the opportunity to construct a constellation lumiere. After selecting a constellation and poking the holes to form its pattern in a piece of paper, participants will assemble it around an LED tea light (while supplies last).

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.
