Inspired to Learn
Brunch and Learn
Want to get to know the art and artists in our Permanent Collection a little better? Brunch and Learn launches on the first Saturday of the month, with posts throughout the day across our social media channels. Learn about artists and their work, and create your own work alongside WMA’s educators.
Join us on May 2 for a nature themed Saturday, and take a closer look at Riverbend, by Alabama artist Scott Stephens.
We know not everyone in our community has access to internet resources, or the art supplies at home to participate in our activities. That’s why WMA is partnering with Dothan City Schools to provide take-home art supply kits to include in the Meal Distribution Program. Kits include lessons and all of the supplies needed to create for over 1,200 students.
Inspired to Connect
Check the museum’s social media accounts often! We’ll have original content from artists including Instagram takeovers, live art talks, and virtual residencies which support artists in the creation of new work.
Sydney A. Foster Residency
Sydney A. Foster also begins her residency in Houston County; stay tuned for details as she explores what makes our region unique.
Instagram Takeovers by Path of Entry Artists
Artists from the exhibition Path of Entry will take over WMA’s Instagram account in a series of consecutive Thursdays. Follow along as they give us a glimpse into their studio practice and daily lives ahead of the exhibition, which has been rescheduled for the spring quarter of 2021.
Virtual First Saturday Family Day
Want to make some art while getting to know the art and artists in our Permanent Collection a little better? Join us for virtual First Saturday Family Day on the first Saturday of the month. Follow the Facebook event to participate in the fun! Learn about artists and their work, and create your own work alongside WMA’s educators with posts beginning at 10 am.
Join us on June 6 to learn about Frank Fleming’s sculpture Unlikely Landing, make a pop-up food chain, and learn how to capture light and shadows in your paintings and drawing!
