Saturday Morning Art Club (Ages 4-7)

This fall the Susquehanna Art Museum is partnering with Messiah College in providing both traditional and innovative ways for our youngest artists to learn to make and appreciate art! Our instructors, Miss Lauren and Miss Kathryn, are juniors and Art Education majors at Messiah College! They are artists who enjoy exploring various 3-D processes and materials such as steel, wood, and fiber. They are also educators who are enthusiastic about fostering connections, and providing unique opportunities for your young students to engage with art in meaningful ways.

Each Saturday Morning Art Club features a new inspiration, technique and material. RSVP early as this class can fill up quickly! Email tsell@sqart.org and indicate the age of your student(s), and which sessions fit your busy schedule!

Young Artist Camp (ages 8-12) 

Young artist camp is a workshop for students ages 8-12. Each session provides our growing artists unique opportunities to explore the current exhibitions and try new techniques, or experiment with traditional and new materials. Since our older kids can handle more challenging concepts, sometimes our projects will continue over more than one session. This fall, our instructors, Miss Kelsey and Miss Rachel, are juniors and Art Education majors at Messiah College. Miss Kelsey has a special personal interest in Abstract Expressionism, while Miss Rachel enjoys working with traditional tools such as charcoal and paints. Together, they are building a curriculum of exciting projects that will help our students grow and develop their skills. 
Lab Hours 10am-12noon

Ages 8-12

Class Limit 15

Fee Purchase the entire 9-week workshop for $90 – or pick any 3 classes for $30 (individual classes are $12)
