Mini Makers
Ages 1.5 – 4
Holly Nowakowski

Children benefit from sharing creative play with their parent/caregiver. This program is designed to nurture this relationship and enhance early foundational skills, while encouraging the inquisitive and curious nature of your child. Through process-based art, we will explore the colorful and creative world around us. Classes incorporate literacy, music, self-expression, and movement and will end with students having created art they are proud of.

Welcome to MMoA’s first Art Club for middle/ high-school students and homeschoolers! Join us for an empowering, supportive, and encouraging experience once a week where teens can work with the museum’s faculty to get one-on one guidance in the areas of drawing, painting and sculpture. Using graphite, pen, paint, and assorted mixed media, different art journal prompts will be given each week. Students may use this time to socialize, create, work on portfolio development, or just relax in the company of others who appreciate the creative and inspiring world of art.
