For Kids and Families
School Outreach Program
The WAAM education program connects with students and supports teachers in our area schools with fieldtrips, classes and workshops that spotlight Woodstock’s formidable art heritage. We currently provide over two hundred hours of in-school programming per year. We also offer programs for homeschoolers.
Our ambitious in-school programming is designed to introduce students to a new historical Woodstock artist every year from Kindergarten to the senior year of high school. A student that attends Woodstock schools will be exposed to 12 prominent Woodstock artists before they graduate. For more information, contact Beth Humphrey at 845-679-2940 x 104 or email email@example.com.
YES! Youth Exhibition Space
Works by area youth are displayed in the Youth Exhibition Space located in our Founders Gallery. Kids and teens show alongside important local artists in a professional environment. Exhibitions change monthly and are scheduled for the entire year in the fall. Click here for upcoming shows.
The WAAM holds a variety of events throughout the year focused on kids and families. Hands-on art actitivities and tours relate to exhibitions and works from the Permanent Collection. Maskmaking, wire sculptures, watercolor still-lifes, sidewalk drawings and giant inflatable structures are just a few of the projects we've done in the past..
Offered on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 5:30-8 pm at the WAAM. A nominal fee covers the model fee. Pre-registration is recommended, as sessions must be fully enrolled or they will be cancelled. 845/ 679-2198 ext. 104.
Education interns at the WAAM act as gallery docents, assist with drop-in programs and classes, and help with the Youth Exhibition Space. Interns come from local high schools and colleges.
Public lectures about exhibitions in the Towbin Wing are periodically scheduled to provide a greater understanding of the artworks on display. Past lecturers include Tom Wolf of Bard College, Nancy Green of Cornell University and Hollister Sturges.
