Kids Can Join Local Artist For A Variety Of Art Classes During Summer At St. Clement’s Island Museum Art Kids

LEONARDTOWN, Md. – Young artists are invited to join art instructor, Ms. Ellen Duke Wilson, this summer to explore fine arts through St. Clement’s Island Museum Art Kids classes. Young artists will expand their understanding of art and history while learning to sketch, paint, and sculpt. Students will also reflect on how making art can impact society in positives way for future generations.

“We are so grateful to have the very talented Elle Duke Wilson back for a fourth year to teach these popular classes,” says Christina Barbour, Site Manager at St. Clement’s Island Museum. “The children have loved coming to each class here at the museum and learning something new in a fun, creative way.”

At the end of each session, all participants create an individualized work of art to share with their family and community. These classes are geared towards children ages 7 to 17. Preregistration is required and the cost is $5 per child. All materials are provided; however, participants are asked to bring a light snack. Parents are encouraged to sign up soon as slots fill up quickly. 

The 2023 class schedule is as follows: June 20 – 22; July 11 – 13; July 25 – 27; and August 8 – 10.
