Introduce your budding artist to the Museum and all the materials that help artists to create! Each class will focus 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!

*Student must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

About the Instructor:
Art has always been Rachel Misnear's first true love. This was a love and appreciation that was fostered in her heart early on by her father, Charlie Busler. He used to teach her about the great painters of our era such as Walter Anderson, Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe and Robert Motherwell. Their excursions to New Orleans and Magazine Street opened even more avenues for her perception of art. Art, to Misenar, became an image of soul, nature and self. She loves to capture the boldness of the world around her, the organic shapes found in the mundane and the small details that most likely go unnoticed.
