Saturday Art Club welcomes kindergarten through high school students. Activities are designed for younger students (K-2nd grade), middle students (3rd-6th grade) and older students (7th-12th grade). There is no charge for the drop-in Saturday Art Club, but donations to the Education department will ensure the continuation of available events. Please come by between 10 am and 1 pm, for a few minutes, or for the whole time.
We invite parents to spend some time with our education specialist to learn techniques for making art part of your family fun. Materials, lesson plans, and ideas will be available at each Saturday event for parental consideration.
The Saturday Art Club series is offered through the generous support of a City of Auburn grant.
