Spend your summer making art and exploring the galleries at the Tucson Museum of Art!

Inspired by the permanent collection and special exhibitions, the Museum offers summer art classes for ages 5 – 13. Children can discover new places and diverse cultures through visits to the galleries and historic buildings, express their creativity, and produce original works of art.

Eight weekly sessions are available, with morning (8:30 – 11:30 AM) and/or afternoon classes (12:00 – 3:00 PM) offered.

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.

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.
