The Museum’s educational philosophy focuses on experimentation, problem solving and “thinking outside the box”. Students create art in a safe and positive environment, finding inspiration in the Museum’s exhibitions and collections. Originality and self-expression are encouraged.

Inspired by the current exhibitions at the Dubuque Museum of Art, students will explore a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, mixed media and 3-dimensional work. Please dress for mess.

Limit: 15 students per age group
