- Morris Graves Museum of Art
- Programs & Education
It is our goal to ensure that art is a part of everyone’s lives in Humboldt County, by supporting the artists who live among us and by offering free and low-cost arts programs and exhibitions to the public at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Every year, we are proud to serve over 16,000 local students by bringing art banks into schools, as well as providing school tours, art camps, and monthly family arts day events.
We also work tirelessly to provide programs and resources that support and inspire the artists living and working among us. Since 2001, we have served as stewards for the Morris Graves Museum of Art which now serves as the hub for our work. In this historic building, we share the work of artists from both Humboldt County and around the world, and continually strive to make this vibrant space inviting and inspiring to all who call Humboldt County home.
After-School Art Classes - Fall Session!
Thursdays, September 28- November 16th, 2017 3:45-5:00, Ages 6-12
This 8-week series of after-school classes focuses on art media exploration and concepts suitable for 6 to 12-year-olds. Young artists will be creatively inspired by the exhibitions on view at the museum during the fall term, and will make artwork that draws upon what they see in the galleries.
Fun art lessons and activities will include:
experimenting with encaustic wax medium
using modeling material and wood to build miniature sculptures
mixed media projects using ink and acrylic paint
drawing and sketching work, plus plenty of painting
Students will learn the language of art while they discuss the art they view in the museum, and then they'll express their creativity and discoveries through unique individual projects they can take home. Sign up here for the fall session of Museum Art Classes!
