Next week new education classes in the Art Museum's Shelton Studio begin! There are classes for teens and adults, and for children of all ages! Education classes at the Art Museum use art that is on exhibition as primary material for inspiration and learning. See below for class schedules and descriptions, and information on how to register. For more information, or to sign up, call the Museum's Education department at 307.766.3496.

Laramie artist Jeanie Schlump shares her secrets for painting with watercolors. Whether you are a beginning artist or an experienced one, this class is structured to accommodate students’ individual abilities and schedules. Each Monday night session will provide a different painting experience, and students may progress at their own pace. It’s an enjoyable time of learning and experimenting – for adults and teens only! No experience is necessary.
FOR TEACHERS: Professional Development Credit is available

Can I try that?
Pre-school & Kindergarten - Thurs.: Feb. 4, 11, 18, 25
Grades 1, 2 and 3 - Tues.: Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23
3:30 - 4:30 p.m.; $25/4-class session
We’ll look for inspiration in the work on display in the 35th Annual Juried UW Student Exhibition. Each week students will have the chance to consider two different art-making processes and then select the one they want to explore. It could be painting, writing, wood sculpting, mask-making, engraving, and more. This is an excellent class for experimentation.

NEW! Afternoons at the Museum
Ages 6-11 - Mon.: Feb. 15, Apr. 26
1 p.m. - 5 p.m. $20/student - OR - $15/student for families with 3 or more children
Scholarships available – pre-registration encouraged
What do students do when they have a day off from school because it is a Staff Development Day for teachers or a school holiday? Why not spend the afternoon at the Art Museum? Modeled after our art camps, each day will be jam-packed with creative activities, using the most interesting materials! Healthy snacks will be provided.
