The Young Artists program (grades 4-9) uses the permanent and special exhibitions in the Neuberger Museum of Art to foster creativity and imagination, individuality, and collaboration, and to help boys and girls discover and develop their innate gifts and talents. Our instructors are highly imaginative art educators, dedicated to making art an adventure and a lifelong joy for the young artist. Students visit the museum at least twice per week to study contemporary artists, their art, and their techniques. Grouped by age and in small classes when appropriate, they are then inspired to use drawing and painting, sculpture, collage, and crafts to discover and express their creativity.
This program’s art making is held in the college’s Visual Arts Building—160,000 square feet of art-making opportunity. Our Visual Arts Building is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Northeast, providing students with superb studio environments specifically geared to the demands of design and art making.
Family members are invited to attend and celebrate their young artists’ accomplishments at the culminating exhibition on the last day of the session. (All art supplies are included.)
