After-School Art Class
The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art’s After School Art Classes offer
a unique environment for learning and creativity. Students view and learn from the Museum’s permanent collection of art spanning 8,000 years of human history, as well as the many unique special exhibitions. Students then use the techniques they see and ideas they discuss to create wildly magnificent art!
The program consists of two semesters, each with 3 five-week sessions
(15 weeks total). There is one class per week. Students may enroll for the entire year or for one or more sessions. Classes fill quickly.
Tuition for the class is per session. There is no registration fee.
After-School Art is cancelled for inclement weather if Shawnee Schools or SGU are cancelled.
Makeup days will be scheduled for each session independently.
