Time: 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Price: $45 for members; $55 for not yet members

Orran Scruggs is a local artist/creative originally from Huntsville, AL. Mr. Scruggs practices in several styles of art: paint, ceramics, jewelry making and woodworking. Orran’s mantra is “create every day” and he has been creating and making things for over 30 years. He has a passion for his community and is heavily involved with many community programs in the Wiregrass Area. Orran will be giving the WMA kids a shadow puppet workshop beginning in February. Orran began his work with shadow puppetry while trying to create visuals for a documentary. He quickly learned that this is an easy way for anyone of any age to be able to tell a story. In this workshop, he will give the students the basics of creating characters, giving them movement, and telling a story through shadow puppetry.

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.
