Elements of Art (Grades K–5)
Experiment with color, texture, line, and shape! Visit the galleries for inspiration, then mix colors with coffee-filter paintings, build a mini-sculpture out of beads and wire, and explore textures with a tactile collage.
- Youth Studio is held indoors in the Museum’s Education Center during cold weather. If the weather is cooperating, we’ll do some art activities outside.
- Space is limited to small groups of up to eight students; face coverings and social distancing are required.
Youth Studio is the Museum’s studio art program for children and teens! Students experiment and explore a variety of media and techniques through classes and workshops led by visiting artists and Museum educators. Classes meet 2–4 weeks and are designed for a deeper exploration of a specific media; workshops meet 3–5 hours and introduce a new medium or process. All materials are provided by the Museum.

The Museum is committed to making our programs accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means. With support from the Walnut Cove Members Association, we are able to provide a limited amount of financial aid to help students who could not otherwise afford to enroll in our programs.
