Phippen Art Museum, click for home

On most first Saturdays of the month, the Phippen Museum offers FREE supervised art or craft activities in our dedicated Kiwanis Education Room. This is a great way to spend a morning with a child, or grandchild, enjoy the museum's exhibits and create a unique art object to "lock in" memories of your visit.
All activities are two hours in duration (10AM -12 Noon) and are accompanied by a lesson and all the materials and tools necessary to successfully complete a project. Phippen Museum members attend free and adult non-members pay only the regular museum admission price.
Please Note: Class sizes are limited, so be sure to call the museum's Education Coordinator, Neal McEwen, in advance to make a reservation (928)-778-1385. In addition, classes that require fine motor skills and the use of sharpened or heat generating tools designate a recommended appropriate minimum age for participation.
