Do you love creating art?

Are you curious about the world around you?

The Staunton Augusta Art Center is offering a series of fun-filled weekly field trip excursions throughout July for children (ages 6-12).   These outings will combine diverse local experiences with artistic activities. Students will have the opportunity to engage with educational representatives from each organization as well as a trained art instructor.


Kids Connect | Art Outdoors is designed as a Covid-responsible event, and capacity will be extremely limited. Parents and guardians will be responsible for transporting students to and from off-site locations.



Classes canceled in March 2020  will be rescheduled as soon as we are able.  If you paid for classes in advance, payments will be applied to the classes of your choice.  

2020 Schedule


Classes are held from 10am-Noon every Saturday in March in the R.R. Smith Center for History & Art.


March 7:  Helen Frankenthaler was one of the most influential abstract artists of the mid-20th century.   Following her “soak-stain” technique known as Color Field Painting, we will explore and celebrate the joy of pure color!

March 14: Georgia O'Keefe is famous for paintings that fill the entire canvas and extend past the edges. She often painted flowers so large and up close you'd feel like you were inside of them!  We will explore O'Keefe's use of scale, background and color.


March 21:  Ellen Wilson was an American Impressionist and wife of President Woodrow Wilson!  We will learn about Impressionism by observing her use of light, color, and composition.                      


March 28: Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist known for her bold self-portraits. We will create our own "selfies" inspired by her use of bold and vibrant color.
