It is our goal to ensure that art is a part of everyone’s lives in Humboldt County, by supporting the artists who live among us and by offering free and low-cost arts programs and exhibitions to the public at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Every year, we are proud to serve over 16,000 local students by bringing art banks into schools, as well as providing school tours, art camps, and monthly family arts day events.
We also work tirelessly to provide programs and resources that support and inspire the artists living and working among us. Since 2001, we have served as stewards for the Morris Graves Museum of Art which now serves as the hub for our work. In this historic building, we share the work of artists from both Humboldt County and around the world, and continually strive to make this vibrant space inviting and inspiring to all who call Humboldt County home.

This 8-week series of after-school classes focuses specifically on art skills and concepts suitable for 7-10 year olds. Come create with us!
Students will draw artistic inspiration from exhibitions in the museum, and art lessons and activities for young artists will include experimenting with drawing using different kinds of art mediums like colored pencil, ink, and pastels. Extended art projects will combine elements of photography, collage, and painting techniques. Kid-friendly discussions about the exhibits and artists help students learn “the language of art” and aesthetic valuing of many art forms.
Scholarships are available! Sign up here to grab a spot for your student in this popular after-school class!
