Class begins with an introductory art activity followed by two art projects and a story. October is "Monster Mash".

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.

Nearly all classes for children are offered free of charge thanks to grants from the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine and Muscatine Charities.

Starting October 7, classes will be held in-person. Registration limited, registration required. Classes will still be pre-recorded and added to our Muscatine Art Center Mini Masters Facebook page.
