We enrolled our son in art classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art a few years ago. Here you are, entering one of the most prestigious art museums in the country, with your 5-year old son in tow, for an art class--how cool is that?
The classrooms are big and bright and there are a multitude of art supplies all over. The instructors were just great and they taught a variety of art media -- there was always something different coming home.
What a wonderful opportunity to meet kids from all over the area and work on art projects together. The classes were held on Saturdays and lasted 2 full hours. Let me tell you, they are busy for those 2 hours!
Unfortunately, during the time that he was taking the classes, the museum was (and still is) undergoing massive renovation, so we were not able to roam around as most of it was completely closed to the public. But, what a true sign of the commitment to such a beautiful, magical place—a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion! I believe it will be completed in 2011, and they have opened areas to the public over the last couple years.
Hats off to the arts in Cleveland and to sharing with the community!
