In the Studio Together (ages 2-4) is designed for adults and children to experience a variety of art
materials in an open studio setting. Several stations are set up for the child, accompanied by an adult,
to explore different ways of creating art. A museum visit is planned for each day.
Two children per one adult.

Artroom (ages 4-5) is designed for the young child as an active orientation to the visual arts. Children
explore the museum’s collections and experiment with a variety of media in the studio. These include
drawing, painting, mixing colors, and collage. Young imaginations are sparked as children discover line,
shape, color, light, and shadow.
