Join us for the Art Academy - a collaboration between the Family Museum and The Figge Art Museum. Beginner classes will take place at the Family Museum, and when your little artist is ready to move on, more advanced and intermediate classes will continue at The Figge. Instruction includes learning about famous artists, drawing, painting, and using various mediums to enhance and explore the artist within the child. Classes span the traditional school year.
