Wee Draw classes provide an hour of entertainment for 3- to 5-year-olds each Monday and Wednesday in June, and Tuesday and Thursday in July at the gallery’s Creative U Studio. Each class will focus on a different book with a related art activity and explore different elements and principles of art in a fun, kid-friendly way. Parents can enroll kids in one or multiple classes.

Studio workshops for targeted age groups, designed to maximize engagement and the learning process, are also available. Workshops include designing and building a robot that performs an art function; learning how to use industrial materials to design and create a variety of useful art projects; infusing math and science concepts to create a big Circle Design, 3D, geometric wall hanging and a Pythagorean proof puzzle; and exploring the elements and principles of art using different mediums in the styles of Henri Matisse, Salvador Dali and Picasso.

Arts on Main offers a wide variety of art programs that will entertain kindergarten through 12th graders this summer.

Adults can enjoy culinary experiences, painting, ceramic and pottery classes, relax on the Roofscape patio, or read in the library while their students are in class.

Art camps are being offered through the summer at participating public libraries and Boys and Girls Club locations in Alma, Cedarville, Mountainburg, Mulberry, Paris and Van Buren. Campers will enjoy fun and creative daily activities in painting, drawing, collage, clay and more.
