Hands-on Workshops for Children and Families

The Museum offers four free community days a year, in which both children and adults can participate in tours of the Museum, discussions around the collection, and have opportunities to make their own works of art. As well as the community days, the Museum offers multiple workshops a year in conjunction with Common Street Arts in Waterville and Waterville Main Street. Each workshop begins with a focused tour of works in the museum collection and concludes with a hands-on art activity.
