Adults need art, too!
The Museum School offers continued learning programs for the fully grown, but still growing. Even as adults, learning to think creatively deepens our understanding of the world and you don’t have to be an artist to enjoy getting your hands dirty. From pottery, to painting and drawing, printmaking, glass fusing, and even alternative art forms like puppet-making and shell engraving, The Museum School encourages creative expression through anything we can get our hands on. No experience is required. All workshops are suitable for ages 15 and up, unless otherwise stated.
We also offer professional development workshops for artists on topics such as building a website, grant writing, social media, and other skills. By keeping up with the latest trends and best practices, we support local artists who want grow their business in a constantly changing market.
We are always looking to add a new art form to the mix! If you are a professional artist and would like to teach a workshop here, check out the Teaching Artist Project>>
