Class begins with an introductory art activity followed by two art projects and a story.

A new theme is presented each month, and each class is built around a children’s book. Mini Masters is an engaging program for young learners (ages 2 to 7) offered every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. and every Thursday at 3:30 p.m., year round.

Nearly all classes for children are offered free of charge.

Classes are now held in-person. Registration is limited and required. Classes will still be pre-recorded and added to our Muscatine Art Center Mini Masters Facebook page. Or, we can provide you with links to our YouTube channel. Email kloos@muscatineiowa.gov for more information.
