FAM 2020 Summer ArtAcademy
Workshops for Kids & Teens
(8 to 17 years of age)

COVID-19 Update: Unfortunately, our Summer 2020 ArtAcademy is
canceled for this summer due to concerns over the pandemic and
Museum exhibition schedule changes. We plan to be back with great new
classes in Summer 2021. All pre-payments will be refunded.

We will continue to post resources for #CreateAtHome projects.

Why are FAM workshops extra special?
Our workshops are fun, lively, engaging and exciting.
  • The visual art workshops allow students to explore their inner creativity and meet other kids that share their passion for art.
  • Students have an opportunity to explore the art in our galleries as inspiration for their summer classes
  • We often bring in special guest artists to teach our summer classes. All of our own staff are professional teaching artists.
Our goal is to help every child be engaged and successful and to foster a love for the arts, learning, and discovery. Past workshops have received rave reviews from both parents and kids!

During the summer of 2014, students created Dominion Dance with SHINE!'s tony sanders and FAM art instructor Jaydee Pirtle. Students wrote, created props and costumes (some adapted from left-behind Trashique costumes), and performed. Click here to see the result.
