Spring Break Art Days at Cranbrook Art Museum features five day-long workshops for students in grades two through seven, each day focusing on a new theme. Each workshop draws inspiration from the Museum’s collection. Students go into the Museum Vaults to see artwork firsthand, a unique experience as our galleries are closed during Spring Break.
Teaching artists from Cranbrook Academy of Art guide students as they create and explore art, architecture, and design using Cranbrook’s amazing collections! All art supplies and materials are included with program registration. Students must bring a lunch. Limited need-based scholarships are available; please contact us for more information.
