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).
FREE FAMILY DAYS
Free Family Days provide families a chance to bond while encouraging observation, imagination, curiosity and creativity. Free Family Days offer participants of all ages structured activities using a variety of materials to create artwork based on personal experience. Activities are designed to be simple enough for ages 4 and up to enjoy, yet complex enough that more experienced young artists can take their projects to another level. Families have fun exploring new media and concepts while finding inspiration among Laumeier’s natural environment, temporary exhibitions and the Permanent Collection. Supported by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.
