The Pensacola Museum of Art Education Department is committed to cultivating meaningful programs that connect communities and visual culture through classes, participatory projects, and interactive and hands-on exhibition experiences.
Each exhibition tells a story, and through participation and thoughtful presentation, our staff encourages visitors to carefully consider the exhibition’s intent, content, and mission, no matter what age or learning level. We aim to be an inclusive and creative resource for Pensacola as a whole, and to serve as the gateway between the public and the Pensacola Museum of Art as an institution.
Through our classes, demos, and semester programs, we encourage students to not only learn artistic techniques and become more engaged with their own ingenuity, but also to challenge students to consider and practice artistic movements, relate key moments in art history, and connect with our creative community.
Step into the PMA Art Studio and unleash your creativity! Participants are invited to join us for Open Studio between 11:00 and 12:30 to explore and experiment with a variety of media and art forms inspired by artists and movements. Each project is suitable for all ages and abilities. An Art Educator will be on site to provide assistance with using tools and the creation of individual art. Occurs on the second and fourth Saturday’s of the month. $12 for adults, and $10 for children under 13. Includes Museum Admission!
Parent's Night Out
While the kids enjoy an art class at the museum, their parents can have a night to themselves. Drop your children off from 5:30pm - 8:00pm on select Saturdays for a night filled with fun crafts and new friends. Students will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of media and engage with the creativity of others. $20 per student. Please pack a dinner and a light jacket, if desired.
