Afternoon at the Museum, a UW Art Museum class for students with the afternoon off due to Albany County School District staff development, will be offered on Monday, April 25 from 1 – 5 p.m. Students ages 6 – 10 are invited to attend and spend the afternoon investigating and producing art.

During the afternoon students will look at the theme of place as they tour the exhibitions, From the Scottish Sublime to the American West, Selected Works from the University of Wyoming and Etsuko Ichikawa: NACHI –between the eternal and the ephemeral–. Using these exhibitions as inspiration, students will use a variety of materials to explore their own ideas of place. Healthy snacks are provided.

The class is $20 per student or $15 per student for families signing up 3 or more children. Pre-registration is encouraged, but is not required. For more information regarding Afternoons at the Museum or other UW Art Museum classes, contact Master Teacher Heather Bender at (307) 766-3515 or
