At the Museum: Spring Art Classes

“Spring into Art Classes at the Museum”

March is going to be a busy month at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. Our children's pottery class has just wrapped up, and the adult pottery class is getting into full swing. This class is full, but don't worry because we will offer another one very soon!

The education department has several exciting activities planned for children to keep them busy over Spring Break. On Tuesday, March 15, LRMA will host its fourth annual Spring Break Festival on the front lawn of the Museum from 1 to 3 p.m. Children of all ages are invited to enjoy an afternoon of free arts and crafts activities and face painting. A representative from the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science will be here with live animals for children to pet. Music will be provided by Jessie Howell of the Cowboy Blues Band. We hope to see you there!

For children who are having a "staycation" this Spring Break, sign them up for our Spring Break Art Break. This three day art camp is on Wednesday, March 16 through Friday, March 18 from 10 a.m. to Noon in our Museum Annex. Children in grades 5K through 6th may attend. We will create different art projects every day in a variety of media, from pottery to painting. There are only a few slots available so please call now to reserve a space for your child at (601) 649-6374.

To wrap up the month of March, we will have our Home School Friday class on Friday, March 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Museum Annex. All home-schooled children are invited to attend, and no reservation is necessary.

Check the Museum’s website at for updates on classes and activities. Even if you can't make it to one of our great Spring Break activities, come by and visit the Museum to see the new art quilt exhibition, 12 Voices, which will be up through June 9.

Angie King is Education Outreach Coordinator at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art.
