Ranging from colonial days and classical painting to the birth of modernism in the early twentieth century, students (ages 5-14) will be exposed to a variety of artists, styles, and media. Each 75-minute lesson is interactive and includes a related art activity. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to discover more about our country’s diverse creative heritage!
