May Adult Art Class Series

Want a creative end to your work day? Come to WMA after hours to immerse yourself in wonderful art! A three-class series will be held once a quarter (February, May, August, November) on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month. Each month’s series will focus on an artist through the in-depth study of a piece by that artist on display at WMA. Once familiar with the individual work, students will learn how to create their own unique work of art in the same medium.

May’s class series will focus on paper decorating techniques used in functional art, such as book binding. Students will learn numerous techniques, including eco-printing –the process of enclosing plant material in a curated bundle of paper and submerging it in hot water to extract pigments, and suminagashi –a paper marbling technique using floating ink. In addition to decorating paper, students will learn how to create their own sketchbook using a no-stitch technique.

Classes will be held in WMA’s studio on May 9th, 16th, and 23rd from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

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.
