OXFORD, Miss – The New Year summons Oxford-area students to the University of Mississippi Museum‘s ArtZone program. Designed for children in grades K-6, the 12-week program runs from Jan. 28 to April 24 and offers participants an opportunity to explore their own creativity.

“ArtZone is a unique after-school program in that it combines engaging art projects inspired by rarely seen artifacts from our collections with truly enriching educational material,” said Emily Dean, the museum’s curator of education.

Parents can choose Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday classes, all of which run 3:45-5 p.m. Each week, students use inspiration from a museum exhibit or artifact to create their own masterpieces.

“The highlight of the semester is a final reception where student work is exhibited in the museum and families are invited to celebrate the young artists,” Dean said.The fee is $50 per family each semester for museum members at the family level and above. For nonmembers, the semester fee is $130. All materials and snacks are included. The registration deadline is Jan. 21, and spaces are limited.

For children in Oxford schools, a bus will be available to bring them from school to the museum.

The registration form is available online or in person at the museum. For more information about the ArtZone program, visit http://museum.olemiss.edu/artzone-fall-2013/ or contact Emily Dean at esdean@olemiss.edu.
