Explore art, create your own, get hands-on, discover special places, and be inspired. That’s just a hint of the fun we have in store for you at The Turner Print Museum. Developed by Dr. Teresa Cotner and the CSU, Chico Art Education Program, workshops include participatory art projects and provide supplies and support as you create your own works of art. Docents conduct engaging, kid-friendly museum discussions related to current exhibitions.
In each workshop, children grades 1 – 12 explore meaningful ideas and processes that lead toward authentic work in a variety of media. No prior art–making experience is necessary. Workshops are FREE for kids interested in art. Registration is required and is on a first–come, first–served basis. Class size is limited to twelve, offering each child plenty of individual attention.
Sign up early. Each workshop limited to 12 students.
Workshops are offered in The Turner Museum on the CSU, Chico campus, across from Meriam Library.
