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.

First Saturday Family Day is currently offering takeaway art kits for the first 100 visitors each first Saturday of the month, available at the museum’s front desk. Each packet will contain detailed instructions and all supplies needed to create that month’s FSFD activity!

The chill in the air has inspired us to create a lovely winter scene for the last First Saturday Family Day of the year. This no scissors required collage is suitable for all ages and will look lovely on your refrigerator this winter! Stop by WMA on Saturday, December 4th to pick up a kit complete with all the supplies needed to create your own Torn Paper Winter Landscape.

Make sure you tag us in your creations on social media, or in your photos when you visit. We love to see what you create!

First Saturday Family Day is made possible by grants from Wiregrass 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.

The Wiregrass Museum of Art reserves the right to photograph and reproduce chosen works publication, publicity, and educational purposes. Participation in this exhibition shall be an agreement on the part of the artist to these conditions. The museum reserves the right to exclude works submitted without appropriate preparation (documentation, mounting hardware, suitable frame/mat, etc.), or which are damaged or incomplete.
