Learning is fun at the Walters for children 3-5 years old and their favorite adult! You and your child will use all of your senses during this 90-minute, hands-on experience that combines a story chosen for its theme, a short tour, and an art activity. Preschool workshops last 90 minutes and are led by specially trained museum educators.
Art Kids classes are for children ages 3-5 only.
Art Kids classes are held from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Art Kids class size is limited to 15 children. One adult chaperone is required for every two children. Pre-registration is mandatory.
