The University of Wyoming Art Museum will host “Family Saturday Art Class” Saturday, May 7, from 10-11 a.m. “Open Studio” will follow the class from 11 a.m.-noon.

“Family Saturday Art Class” will be directed by trained teaching artists to help families create their own Mother’s Day-inspired art with a variety of paint media. The exhibition “Beyond the Model: Contemporary Women Artists from the Art Museum Collection (Part I)” will serve as inspiration. The class costs $10 per student or $7 per student for families of three or more.

“Open Studio” offers a chance for individual creative exploration. Families or individuals and groups of all ages can freely experiment with select art media. A trained teaching artist will be available for questions or guidance as needed. The cost is $10 per student or $7 per student for families of three or more; parents are admitted free. Families who attend “Family Saturday Art Class” can attend “Open Studio” at no additional cost.
