Due to the public health concerns regarding COVID-19, the Youth Summer Art Program will not be held this summer. The safety of our young artists, their families, and our teachers is our utmost concern.
We are presently looking into accessible at-home art projects this summer to continue our mission of educating the young artists of our community.
Classes will resume as usual next summer.
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, art history discussions and 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.
Classes will take place Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon. Class fee is $175 per student per week.
Scholarships are available for talented students in the community who are interested in art. Please inquire by phone: 978-452-7641.
