Slow Art Day at WMA

Experience the phenomenon that is Slow Art Day at WMA! Slow Art Day is an international event hosted by over 100 museums and arts organizations with the mission of helping people discover the joy of looking at, making meaning of, and loving art. The premise of Slow Art Day is simple: attendees show up to a participating venue and are instructed to look at works of art slowly (at least 5 to 10 minutes long). After that, participants will gather at the venue and have a moderated discussion about what they saw, what they didn’t see, what it means to them, and what discoveries they made from looking slowly.

WMA will host our own Slow Art Day event on Saturday, April 21st from 10 – 11:30 a.m. Participants at WMA’s event will be treated to an exciting experience as they slowly look and make meaning of an incomplete exhibition installation in our Main Gallery. Guests will have 30 – 45 minutes of slow-looking and will be encouraged to join the following discussion in the galleries. Come make your own meaning at Slow Art Day at WMA! Call the museum at 334-794-3871 for more information.


The event is finished.

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.

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.
