The Huntsville Museum of Art’s Museum Academy has offered creative and engaging hands-on art classes for over 40 years. The Academy’s programs are held in two classrooms on the Plaza Level in the Museum overlooking Big Spring Park. Our schedule includes classes for preschoolers through adults. The Academy offers workshops and classes in a variety of media year round. Find something to suit your interests whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist.

Students will have the opportunity to visit the Stender Family Interactive Education Galleries – ART LAB and A Walk Through Time during the art classes. ART LAB provides hands-on activities, which instruct on the basic elements of art. A Walk Through Time takes students on a journey through major events in art history and includes replicas of famous works of art.

All materials are provided for the children’s classes. Pre-registration is required. To register, call 256.535.6372 or register online by selecting the desired class.

Classes are taught by experienced instructors and teaching artists who use the Museum – working in the studios to the galleries – as an expanded classroom.  See Instructors’ Bios on our website.
