Youth Summer Art Program 2024

 Whistler House Museum of Art


The Youth Summer Art Program is open to children grades 5 to 8, ages 10 to 14 years.  Each week-long session focuses on a different art form and combines exciting hands-on art creation with museum tours and art history discussions, connecting real works of art with the day's activity. Professional artists and educators will direct creative and age-appropriate activities using a variety of media in the museum's historic house, Parker Gallery, and in the adjacent Whistler Park. Local visiting artists will come to speak about their works in the week's featured medium.
