General Information
  • General Information
    Youth classes are taught by professional art educators who enjoy teaching children. All supplies are provided for youth classes. Adults must bring their own supplies. A list of suggested supplies will be sent automatically if you register through www.familyid.com; otherwise please call the front desk to request one. All youth classes, except the Making Comics Workshop, meet for 5 days, Monday-Friday. Please drop off and pick up children promptly at the Museum’s main entrance on Elm Street. Parents/guardians do not have to stay in the Museum during class. A limited number of scholarships are available. Please contact Laura Howick, Director of Education, at 978-345-4207 ext. 305 for details. We believe creating art is especially good for children; they learn motor skills, decision-making, visual literacy, and positive self-expression. Your child does not have to have “talent” to take our art classes, just an interest in art.
  • *Fees
    If you sign up for both morning classes for ages 5-8, the fee is $105 for Family-level Museum members; $125 for non-members. Each class for ages 9-12 is $105 for Family-level Museum members; $125 for non-members. There is an additional fee of $15 for supervision during lunch if the student is taking a morning and afternoon class. (Students must provide their own lunch and snacks.)
  • Photography Policy
    Often the Museum staff or local newspaper would like to photograph students in the classroom for publishing on social media or in the newspaper. If you do not want your child photographed for this purpose, please indicate that on your registration form, otherwise we will assume we have your permission.
  • Class Cancellations Due to Under-Enrollment or Instructor Illness
    If a class has to be cancelled due to these circumstances, students will be notified by phone and refunds will be issued.
