The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) will host a free art-making open house Saturday, Aug. 17 from noon to 3 p.m. The event offers families the opportunity to create projects using clay, paint, and printmaking materials.

“We want students to have the opportunity to test out some of the classes the Museum is offering in the fall to see what might interest them,” said Studio Program Manager Sara Daniels. “These open house art projects allow people to explore what it’s like to participate in our classes before signing up for one.”

In addition to art making activities, there will be gallery visits led by instructors and refreshments. Parents and adult caregivers with children between the ages of three and 17 encouraged to attend. No pre-registration is required.

“Families are invited to attend the open house to explore their interest in art and meet some of the Museum’s instructors and staff,” Daniels said. “We will also share information about class scholarships and the Teen Work Study program.”

Registration for fall art classes is now open. The deadline for Fall Session 1 classes, which begin the week of Sept. 15, is Sept. 1. The registration deadline for Fall Session 2 classes, which begin the week of Oct. 20, is Oct.6. Visit to register.
