Join us as the Ackland resumes our popular Art Adventures class in person with instructor Allison Tierney! We will be inspired by Christopher Myers’ Fish Pieta (2020).

Art Adventures sessions provide kids with a guided view of art in the Ackland’s galleries, followed by the opportunity to create take-home treasures in an adjacent art studio using newly-learned art-making techniques. Materials are provided.

Class sessions will be limited to 10 participants.  Masks are required in the Museum and Hanes Art Center. Art Adventures is geared towards children aged 6-9.

If you encounter registration issues, please email us at acklandRSVP@unc.edu. We apologize for any inconvenience.
