Mini Matisse: Meet the Materials I

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 to Thursday, May 24, 2018

9-11 AM

Entergy Classroom

Ages 3-4*
Cost: $75
Class limit: 9

Introduce your budding artist to the Museum and all the materials that help artists to create! Each class focuses on a different material on display in Picturing Mississippi and will engage children and their caregivers in gallery activities, hands-on art projects, art games, and books. We will use an array of sensory media, as well as air-dry clay, washable paint, paper, pencil, crayons, glue, and more. Bring your imagination and dress for mess!

*Students must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
