The PNC Arts Alive Family Arts Program is a free introductory art experience offered to children and teens (ages 5 to 17) from 9:30–11:30 a.m. Saturdays during the school year.
A family-oriented program, the classes give children the opportunity to work with different craft media. The activities will relate to the exhibitions that are on display.
The classes are taught by professional artist and parents or guardians are required to stay with the younger children (ages 5-12) throughout the program and often work alongside them.
There are four specialized studios through which the students will rotate:
- a clay studio
- a metals studio
- a fiber studio
- a graphics studio
Except for the graphics studio, which can only accommodate eight people, the studios have room for 12 students. A total of 44 children, teens and their parents can be served each session.
There are five, four-week sessions in a year, which will cover a total of three different exhibitions.
