At the Swope Art Museum, the space formerly known as the Halcyon Gallery (the corner of 7th and Ohio) is a studio and community space now known as the Education Center!
One of the great features of this space is that it includes a program for preschoolers (for ages 3-5) called Art Start. Art Start currently takes place on Tuesdays and is absolutely free.
Art Start takes place on most Tuesdays (exceptions are usually posted on the Swope Facebook page) from 1-2pm for children ages 3-5 accompanied by an adult. Classes will be hosted in the Education Center.
In the past, the kids listened to a story, worked on an art project, and sometimes even worked on a scavenger hunt in the museum!
Art Start is my favorite place to be when my girls ask to make art, and I don’t feel like prepping or cleaning!
