The University of Wyoming Art Museum will offer a four-session Friday morning preschool class Oct. 6, 13, 20 and 27 from 10-11 each day.

Each session will be led by the Art Museum’s trained teaching artists and educators to help preschool students explore a variety of materials to create unique works of art.

The Art Museum’s October class is titled “Learning from the Cheech Marin Collection.” Students will be inspired by the exhibition “Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Cheech Marin Collection,” and they will learn about why people collect art and how artists create work that inspires others. Each week, students will create a new work to add to their collection. The four-session class is $25 per student. Online registration is available at

For more information, contact Master Teacher Heather Bender at (307) 766-3515 or Visit the Art Museum website at, or follow the museum on Facebook.

Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
