Summer Art Classes Announced

New adult workshops and teen programs added this year

April 22, 2009 – Sacramento, Calif. – This summer let the Crocker Art Museum's world-class art collection be your source for exploration, instruction and inspiration. The Crocker presents more than 20 educational opportunities this summer for children, teens and adults interested in expanding and exercising their artistic awareness and abilities. All classes are taught by highly skilled teaching artists and are designed to encourage students to unleash their imaginations while receiving formal lessons in color, line, texture and a variety of media.

Summer Art Classes for children range from two-day workshops to week-long sessions, and this year marks the first series of Summer Art Classes for Adults. The Crocker's Teen Action Team has also planned three half-day workshops and events for teens. Each session is designed for a particular age group and taught by local artists using artwork from the Crocker collection and changing exhibitions for inspiration.

Registration is now open and Crocker members receive discounts. Session fees range from $40 to $145 per student and include class materials and refreshments. A full listing of programs follows.

Classes and workshops vary by location. Due to construction for the Museum's expansion, most summer classes for children are held offsite at the West Sacramento Civic Center Galleria, located at 1110 West Capitol Avenue, approximately five minutes from the Crocker.
