Why Does WMA Matter to You?

Dear Friends of WMA:

We at Wiregrass Museum of Art care deeply about making the art and programming we share meaningful to you, our community, and all our visitors.

But we need your help! To learn more about how visitors like you engage with us, we are participating in a national survey of museum-goers, sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums. This survey will provide us with data to help us more effectively share our work with the communities we serve.

Will you please help us by taking our survey to share your thoughts about how Wiregrass Museum of Art and other museums engage you?

The survey takes about nine minutes to complete. As a thank you for your time and willingness to participate in the survey, there will be an opportunity for you to win one of four $50 Amazon gift cards!

Simply click on the survey here to get started!

Note: All responses to this survey will be kept confidential. Your response will not be used for any future solicitation.

If you have any problems with the survey itself, please contact the survey administrator, Susie Wilkening, at susie@wilkeningconsulting.com.

And thank you in advance for your time and thoughts!

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.

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.
