Click here for more information or to sign up.

Our Kids Art Smart program opens its classroom for a special Sunday afternoon art class! Young artists are invited to join us to make warm and cool oil pastel drawings inspired by Marc Chagall. Fusing his own personal, dreamlike imagery with hints of the fauvism and cubism popular in France at the time, Chagall created his most lasting work after he left Russia for Paris in 1907, where he lived in an artist colony on the city’s outskirts.

There is no fee to participate in the class and all the materials are provided. Ages 5-12. Free.
