Looking for a fun, affordable, and educational afterschool activity? Why not try the art studio?

Designed for ages eight through ten, this program is a great way to add more art to your kids’ routines and get them involved in something inspirational. We’ll spend time in the galleries learning about art, then head into the studio to flex those creative muscles and create something inspired by the collection. (Don’t worry—we’ll take care of the clean-up!)

This month, we’re focusing on FUNdamentals and diving into drawing. We’ll practice basic drawing techniques and learn tips and tricks to build a foundation of art skills that are both fun and useful.

Come make Crystal Bridges your new weekly routine—sign up today!

Tickets are $45 ($36 for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
