|Exploring the Masters art program for ages 4-7 begins June 6|
Exploring the Masters is for ages four through seven. Seven week-long sessions focus on a different artist for each week of four sessions. Participants will learn about the artists, discuss techniques used in their works, and then delve into their own palette of colors. Children will bring home one or two matted artworks each week. Perform a catalog search for the keyword "art" to find these programs in the JCPRD's online listings.
