The Westmoreland Museum of American Art offers innovative and engaging monthly art classes taught by a professional art instructor giving children the opportunity to expand and explore their creativity.
Imagine peeking through a window into a small microcosm. This is a world within itself. Are there people, animals, buildings, trees, or imaginary creatures? Create your own enclosed scene using paper cutting, folding and manipulating techniques.
Cost: $15 for Museum members, $20 for non-members. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register or for more information, contact 724.837.1500 x110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
And don’t forget to visit the Center for Creative Connections!
This interactive center in the Museum invites visitors of all ages to explore activities related to the collection. Each hands-on activity gives visitors a fun way to make connections to the artwork in the galleries. Current activities include an opportunity to create landscape layouts, a build-a-bridge activity, a large drawing glass that inspires you to be an artist and create fun, full-length portraits of your friends and family, and a stop-motion animation activity that allows you to make artwork come alive by animating a selection of backgrounds and characters from our paintings.
