In the interest of the safety and well-being of WMA’s guests and staff, in-person First Saturday Family Day gatherings have been temporarily suspended. Grab a FREE FSFD art kit at the museum’s front desk and create at home!

New for 2021: Winter Quarter First Saturday Family Day Dates
Saturdays are the perfect day for children and families to create and explore art together! First Saturday Family Day, one of WMA’s longest-running educational programs, offers free art activities on the first Saturday of every month for kids of all ages and their families.

In the spring of 2020, First Saturday Family Day transitioned to a virtual format on WMA’s Facebook page. Beginning February 6, 2021, WMA will offer monthly FSFD art packets that guests can pick up at the museum. Each packet will contain detailed instructions and all supplies needed to create that month’s FSFD activity!

Please stop by WMA on the first Saturday of every month to pick up a FSFD activity packet. The free packets will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone.

Be sure to check WMA’s Facebook page for more information and video demonstrations of each monthly activity!

The beautiful spring weather has inspired us to create landscape art this month…with a twist!

Not the best at drawing? No worries! You’ll tear your way to a lovely outdoor scene with these torn-paper landscape collages! Each kit will contain detailed instructions and the supplies needed to create your very own landscape.

Fifty kits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturday, April 3rd. See you then! Make sure you tag us in your creations! We love to see what you create!

First Saturday Family Day is made possible by grants from Southeast Alabama Community Foundation and Walmart Giving.

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.
