Adults: Gallery/Studio Program

Registration is now closed. Due to increasing health concerns in connection with the novel coronavirus, and as a matter of care for our staff, visitors, community, and city, the Brooklyn Museum closed to the public as of March 13. We are also postponing or cancelling all in-person programs until further notice. During the closure, the Museum will undergo a thorough cleaning. We look forward to welcoming our staff and visitors back to the Museum as soon as possible. We are continuously monitoring the situation and paying close attention to updates and guidelines issued by health officials. Please check back for the latest information regarding additional cancellations and our plans to reopen.

The Gallery/Studio Program offers fun and challenging studio art courses. Be inspired and guided by professional teaching artists and create your own art with new and traditional materials. All levels of experience welcome!
