Did you know that LACMA offers art classes? From drawing and painting for adults to a variety of options for kids and families, there's something for everyone regardless of prior experience. This spring, join LACMA's teaching artists to try your hand in collage, watercolor in the sculpture garden, drawing, photography, printing, or working with wax and paper. For kids ages 6–9, Art and Nature will teach them how to make animal sculptures with clay, make natural dyes, and create nature block prints, while children 10–13 years old can explore artists' use of portraiture as a vehicle for self-expression and teens can hone their printmaking techniques in Experimental Art.
LACMA also offers family art classes that are perfect for children and their parents, grandparents, or other caregivers. Classes for tots ages 3 1/2 to 5 and their family members include storytelling, observation activities, and art-making, while classes for students age 5 and up provide opportunities to learn about everything from book making to the elements of art. LACMA members, including NexGen members, enjoy discounts on all art classes.
Looking for free classes? LACMA offers free art workshops at libraries in Monterey Park, East Los Angeles County Library, and a community center and library in Compton, in addition to Andell Family Sundays at LACMA and Saturday afternoons at Charles White Elementary School in MacArthur Park.
