Local Artist Spotlight - Bay Area Discovery Museum

Local Artist Spotlight

At Local Artist Spotlight, children explore a specific artistic technique through a project inspired by a Bay Area artist in a small-group, workshop setting. Under the guidance of the artist and BADM staff, children leave the class with an introduction to a new style of art along with the piece they worked on.

This class is free for BADM members and included in regular price of museum admission.
