Fall Outreach Program - Saturday, October 6, 2012
Ages 5-8: Creative Collages 10-11 am
During her career, Minna Citron used her creativity to make collages. Kids ages 5-8 will use paper, glue, and other materials to make their own unique collages. A simple, fun way for your children to express themselves and learn about art at the same time.

Ages 9-12: Splatter Painting 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
One of the many ways Minna Citron made art was dripping paint onto her canvas; now, your child in the 9-12 age group can too! The kids will be able to learn and express themselves by creating an unique piece of art - without a mess for you to clean.

Winter Outreach Program - Saturday, December 3, 2011
Our Juniata students team up with guest artist Rebecca Strzelec to give your child an opportunity to explore computer aided design and the art of mixed-media sculpture.
Ages 5-8: Self-Portrait Sculptures 10-11 am
Playing on the theme of self-portraits, the 5-8 age group will use clay, wax and other materials to make their own unique sculpture. These models will reflect an aspect of their life; for instance if your child loves sports, he might make a sculpture of a football.
Ages 9-12: Wearable Art 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The 9-12 age group will have the chance to make a piece of wearable art. After watching the artist demonstrate the software she uses, students will make their own wearable art object. For example, if your child loves dance she might make a pin of ballet shoes.
The programs are free to the public, but space is limited. To register your child or for more information, please contact Jennifer Streb at 814-641-3657 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms are available at registration.
Saturday, January 29, 2011
The museum is delighted to continue our series of fun and creative educational programs for children. Past participants have very much enjoyed their experiences at the museum: Maddy and Livvy Wolf enthused that they “liked looking at all the pretty paintings,” while Carly and Ethan McKellop described their time in the museum as “really fun!” Museum Studies students Erica Strang and Elizabeth Sunde will lead this year’s informative and interactive tour of Mary Cady Rubenstein’s sculptures and prints. Rubenstein, who first discovered art when she was nine years old, said that she “never wanted to do anything else.” We hope that children will be similarly inspired by her work and the opportunity to create their own art as part of these programs.
Our outreach events will be held on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at the Juniata College Museum of Art:
Session 1: Woodcut Activity (5- to 8-year olds) 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Simulating the woodcut process, the students will tell their own stories by etching into styrofoam plates.
Session 2: Soap Carving (9- to 12-year olds) 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Using scultping techniques learned during the educational program, students will carve their own sculpture out of a bar of soap.
2009-2010 Academic Year
The museum is pleased to announce the continuation of its educational outreach events this fall. Our goal is to introduce children to the museum, to get them excited about learning, and encourage them to be creative by offering fun, interactive educational activities.
We will offer hands-on, art-based learning this fall during two programs held in conjunction with the Renewal: Printmakers from the New Northern Ireland exhibition. Many contemporary artists featured in the exhibition are inspired by the Northern Irish land- and seascapes; they look to the sweeping mountains, the turbulent seas, the local boglands and the surrounding lakes and focus on color, form and space to convey the richness and expanses of these settings. Students participating in the programs will be taken on an interactive tour of the gallery where they will learn about the artists and their varied artistic techniques. Following the tour students will have the opportunity to create their own nature-inspired artworks.
Finger Painting Fun! (5 to 8 year olds) will be held Saturday October 3, 10:30-11:30 am at the Juniata College Museum of Art
Printmaking Fun! (9-12 year olds) will be held Saturday October 24, 10:30-11:30 am at the Juniata College Museum of Art.
To register your child, or for more information, please contact Jennifer Streb at 814-641-3657 or email@example.com.
2008-2009 Academic Year
After a successful beginning for our educational outreach programs last year, when groups of school children enjoyed tours and discussion in the gallery, then created their own narrative collages and paintings inspired by the works on display, the museum is pleased to offer two more programs this year. Juniata senior Museum Studies students Alex-Rae Campbell and Claire Wakefield will lead interactive tours of the museum’s permanent collection of Hudson River School paintings, then guide the children in hands-on workshops relating to landscape imagery. The first program, for 5- to 8-year olds, will be held on January 31, 2009, from 10:30-11:30 a.m., while the second program, for 9- to 12-year olds, will take place on February 21, 2009, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The programs are free to the public, but space is limited. To register your child, or for more information, please contact Jennifer Streb at 814-641-3657 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2007-2008 Academic Year
The museum is developing community outreach activities and offered two programs for elementary children during the Fall 2007 semester in conjunction with “Jacob Lawrence: Three Series of Prints.” Emily Fitzgerald and Lindsay LaPrad, both senior Museum Studies POEs, provided interactive tours of the exhibition for 5- to 8-year olds and 9- to 12-year olds and led hands on workshops relating to Lawrence’s creative method.
