Summer Quarter First Saturday Family Day Activities

July 6: Action Painting
Create a colorful painting using marbles! Families will be given a box lined with paper, a couple of marbles, and a colorful palette of paint. With just a bit of shaking (or a lot!), you’ll have an abstract masterpiece in minutes!

August 3: Collage Art
Come into the studio to create your own cut paper collage! With a wide selection of vibrant painted paper to choose from, families can make a colorful design of their choosing.

September 7: Monoprinting
Join us in the studio and create your own unique print! Using gelli plates, ink, and stencils, families will be able to design colorful artworks — each print different than the last!

 

 

First Saturday Family Day activities are made possible by the Wells Fargo Foundation.

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.
