EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Laumeier’s 1917 Estate House, formerly used for exhibitions, the Welcome Center and Museum Shop, has been renovated into the new Kranzberg Education Lab, featuring spacious studios and meeting spaces for classes, lectures, workshops and other programs beginning summer 2015. This transformation allows Laumeier to offer year-round education programs for all ages and provide smaller rental spaces to organizations, community groups and individuals.

Laumeier's education programs reflect the unique qualities of the Park. Art Camps, Classes and Workshops for youth, teens and adults—even whole families!—capture the intersection of art and the natural environment with offerings in nature, nutrition and gardening, in addition to the more traditional art media. Many programs also incorporate themes from our temporary exhibitions and In-Residence Program

Discover Laumeier education programs by enrolling in our Art Camps, Classes and Workshops, or participate in a Docent-led tour of the Permanent Collection. Outreach Programs are also available for school groups and educators seeking professional development. Become a Member to receive discounts on multi-day education programs (Art Camps and Classes).

PROGRAM ConfirmationS

Confirmation letters will be issued by email for Art Classes and Workshops. Early registration is strongly encouraged because it helps to determine whether a program will be offered. The minimum enrollment deadline for Art Classes and Workshops is seven business days before the program is scheduled to begin. Laumeier reserves the right to cancel a program if the minimum enrollment is not met by the deadline. As long as the minimum is met, additional registrations will be accepted up to two business days before the program begins. Please contact the Education Department at 314.615.5268 to request confirmation by mail.

Parent Packets will be issued by email for Art Camps; please allow two weeks for processing and confirmation. Families will be contacted immediately if an Art Camp session is full.


Refunds / Withdrawals / Cancellations / Changes

Written notice of withdrawal from Art Camps, Classes and Workshops must be received three weeks before the program begins to receive a full refund, less a $35 processing fee for multi-day education programs (Art Camps and Classes). Art Camp session changes will be accepted up to three weeks before the session begins, less a $15 processing fee. No refunds or credits will be issued after that time.

Laumeier does not arrange make-up sessions for programs missed by students. In the event that Laumeier must cancel a program due to low enrollment, families will be notified in advance and a full refund will be made. In the event that Laumeier must cancel a program due to unforeseen circumstances (including inclement weather), families will be notified and an alternate program date will be offered.
