UM Museum Offering After-School Art Classes this Fall

Summer break is over and with schools starting back up, it is almost time for Fall 2014 ArtZone at the University of Mississippi Museum.
ArtZoneThis year’s ArtZone will revolve around exhibits from the museum’s permanent collection and traveling exhibitions. The ArtZone semester begins Sept. 9 and runs through Dec. 4, with sessions going from 3 to 5:05 p.m. weekly. Participants will be inspired by ancient civilizations, folk art and special exhibits.
“ArtZone is a truly unique program here in Oxford as each week, children are inspired by art and artifacts from our collections and beyond in an educational, fun and hands-on way,” said Emily Dean, the museum’s curator of education. “The museum comes to life for these young learners in a way that they will remember for years to come. We travel back in time, dabble in modern art and push the limits of creativity, all culminating in a final exhibit of student work here at the museum.”
Fees for the 12-week ArtZone semester are $70 per family for museum members at the family level or higher and $150 per family for non-members. All supplies and snacks are included. Parents can choose to enroll their children in the Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday classes. Each day will offer two different classes to suit different age groups.
Space is limited and the registration deadline is Sept. 1. Parents can pick up a registration form at the museum or download a copy here.
