Vacation Week Workshops

vacation week worcester art museum

School's out? Art's in!

Join us for our vacation week workshops that provide a creative hands-on experience for ages 3-17.  Give your children a break from their regular school day and allow them to delve into fun and exciting projects in a Museum setting. All workshops include a visit to the Museum galleries and interaction with professional artists and educators. The goal of the program is to develop important skills that lead to increased creativity, helping students make their own work of art.


Upcoming Workshops


April Art: The Outer Limits of Art

April 18 - 21, 2017
There is nothing wrong with your creations...
Do not attempt to adjust your imagination...
These fun, hands-on workshops for youth and teens include
gallery visits and exploring new art techniques in the studios.
Two and four hour workshops available.
Our April Art workshops provide a valuable introduction to the
Museum’s collection and the process that goes into creating art.
For more in-depth instruction, we encourage you to explore our
youth art program, which provides sequential art classes
throughout the year.
