Looking for something new to do this summer? The Museum’s Summer Art Academy is the perfect opportunity for students ages 5-11 to explore special exhibitions, experiment with hands-on art techniques, and make new friends. Students will stretch their imaginations as they think critically, creatively, and collaboratively about art!

Space is limited for each session and reservations are required; please contact the Curator of Education at 860-486-1711 or email to reserve your place.

$150 museum members/$160 non-members.

SECRETS OF THE FOREST: FAERIES AND GNOMES (ages 5-7) Enter a magical and artistic realm of hard-to-find creatures, faeries and gnomes! Students will get creative as they build faerie and gnome dwellings, design magical wands, paint with faerie dust, and sculpt toadstools.
