Draw, paint, sculpt, collage, print, and more at the Tucson Museum of Art! Each weekly session is led by local teaching artists and museum educators focusing on in-depth lessons in art marking. Classes of up to 15 children (grouped by age) discover new places and diverse cultures through visits to the Museum galleries and historic buildings.

Children will participate in both classes offered for their particular age group. For example, children signed up for the 8 – 10 age group will take both classes.

Education Department staff reserves the right to change program descriptions and art instructors at anytime without notice.
