Kids + Families


Create and learn together

WAM’s family-friendly classes provide the opportunity to explore, move, and create with an adult in the studio. Taught by professional artists and educators families make beautiful artworks and wonderful memories. Budding artists- young and old- jump in and have fun in the studio while exploring materials and techniques side-by-side. Register each person attending, including any accompanying adults.

A New Summer Program!

WAM has shaken things up, with a new summer schedule and interdisciplinary offerings mixed in with our classic high-quality arts classes! Registration is now easier than before, and longer class hours better fit family schedules. You can read a bit more about these changes below and the individual components of each program can be found within the descriptions.

For Art-Together Classes:

We are keeping our 2-hour Art Together classes the same as last year, with a slight shift in the schedule. They will run from 10:30AM-12:30PM.
