Stories from WMA

There’s something new in the neighborhood – Free Little Art Supplies Libraries!

WMA has launched its newest project, in partnership with Dothan Leisure Services, and with support from Wiregrass Foundation. Free Little Art Supplies Libraries are now installed in three locations, Andrew Belle Community Center, Westgate Park near the entrance to the aquatics center, and in the museum’s Education Gallery.

Museum staff, volunteers, and WMA Teens transformed retired newspaper distribution boxes, donated by The Dothan Eagle, making them into colorful and fun stations where residents and visitors can find art supplies, activities, and art books. We encourage a ‘take one, leave one’ approach, and even encourage visitors to leave their own works of art for others to appreciate.

            

Free Little Art Supplies Libraries will be refreshed regularly with new supplies, books, and kits. By providing access to high-quality artmaking resources, we hope to encourage everyone in the Wiregrass to be more creative and innovative, and to enjoy making and sharing art in the place they call home.

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.
