Discover a variety of classes taught by accomplished local artists who are excited to share their expertise with young people. Classes usually meet for four consecutive weeks and class themes and techniques vary widely, from portraiture to jewelry making.
Lux’s in-depth, after-school art program for young artists ages 5-12 gives kids the opportunity to interact deeply and playfully with work by the current artist-in-residence. Each four-week session corresponds to the Lux residency schedule and is based on the ideas, style, and technique of the artist residing at Lux.
Lux’s popular Art Camp develops young artists, grades K-11, as they explore, make, and exhibit art in a museum setting. Each unique week of project-based camp gives young people the chance to “meet” contemporary artists in order to develop their own visual style. The Summer Art Camp culminates in a professionally installed exhibition in the Artist Pavilion.
Kids-in-Residence is an exciting opportunity for young artists to engage deeply with the residency program. Students are in one group ages 5 - 8 year olds, with a maximum of 10 students in the class. Inspired by the work of Jorge Pardo students are guided to create a range of art projects in dialogue with the body of work in exhibition. May 31, June 7, 14 & 21 CLICK HERE TO REGISTER MORE >
