Birthday Parties & Art Parties
Art parties are a great way to celebrate a birthday or other occasion. Projects, including tie-dye, clay, jewelry-making, and printmaking, will make the party a fun, unforgettable event, and everyone will go home with his or her very own creation. We know how to create a party, whether for a child's birthday or any other special event!
Each year almost 1,000 Scouts earn merit badges in after school and weekend workshops. Many of our programs are scheduled through the local Girl Scout and Boy Scout Councils, but instructors can custom design a program to meet the needs of a specific troop or pack as well.
The museum offers docent-led (guided) tours of the museum's main exhibitions. Tours are available for schools, camp programs, community centers etc. and are adaptable for children and adults. Tours for Adults are approximately 45 minutes at $10 per person. Tours for students/children are approximately 45 minutes at $5 per child, chaperones are free. Tours for students/children with an exhibition related craft project are approximately 90 minutes at $10 per child, chaperones are free. To schedule a tour please call at least two weeks in advance.
HAM Young Artists Showcase
The HAM Young Artist Showcase provides over 1,000 schoolchildren each year with the opportunity to exhibit their art in a designated gallery of the museum. The program runs from January through June, featuring the artwork of children in Kindergarten through High School. Additionally, the museum hosts opening receptions for the "guest artists," their families, friends, and teachers.
The museum hires teachers throughout the year for children's and adult's studio art classes. We are particularly seeking teachers with innovative ideas for classes. If you are interested, please send your resume to the Education Department. Please also include a list of possible classes you would like to teach, along with the ages for which each class would be suitable.
