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.

Educational Resources

Are you homeschooling, teaching virtually, or needing curriculum-based lessons?We’ve done the work for you with resources that can be found on WMA’s Educator’s Lair blog, with new posts every Monday, and 23 unique lesson plans for preK-12 students.

Stay Connected!

Tune in to the museum’s Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube channels to see video content created just for you. Including We Create Wednesday video lessons, and Free For All Fridays, we’ve got fun things for all ages! And don’t forget to tag us in your projects!

Community Outreach

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.

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.
