Programs created for adults.
You’re never too old to learn new ways to create art. So don’t miss the myriad of adult programs to get your hands dirty, and personally connect with American art.
Ever want to know more about an artist, work of art, or exhibition? Attend a personal enrichment tour at The Westmoreland! These history-themed tours are suitable for anyone with a passion for learning history through art. The first series of personal enrichment tours focus on the featured exhibition, African American Art in the 20th Century, with each session featuring an in depth tour on a different topic of African American history and a hands on art making project. Each tour will cost $8 for members and $10 for non-members. Sign up for one of our Enrichment Tours: African American Art in the 20th Century.
