Art Venues in South Jersey




Grounds for Sculpture

 

Appel Farm Arts & Music Center, Elmer

Little kids: The after-school Arts Lab, for grades K-5, gives kids a primer on visual and performing arts, culminating in an exhibit of students’ work.
Older kids: The annual Teen Arts Festival, held in spring, lets local kids bring their creations for professional evaluation, join workshops and watch performances by peers.

Center for the Arts in Southern New Jersey, Marlton

Little kids: Youth classes cover drawing fundamentals before moving on to other media, like ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil.
Older kids: Support fellow creators or show off a masterpiece of your own at frequent exhibitions just for kids.

Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton

Little kids: Experience this sculpture park through Tots on Tour. Inspired by current exhibits, activities include stories, hands-on workshops and a child-friendly stroll around the grounds.
Older kids: After a drop-in family class, head outdoors to the interactive Seat of Sound. The sculpture — just one of hundreds on view — functions as artwork and instrument, letting families create music with a system of iron, brass, aluminum and wood gongs.

Markeim Arts Center, Haddonfield

Little kids: Let your baby or toddler lead the way during the unstructured Creative Playtime. Painting, printmaking, building, drawing, storytelling and movement are all part of the fun.
Older kids: Ages 6-13 can opt for either of two after-school programs: a ceramics course where they’ll learn handbuilding techniques and make projects like pinch monsters or a class all about pottery basics.

Perkins Center for the Arts, Collingswood & Moorestown 

Little kids: For families not afraid to get messy, parent-and-child clay classes are a great way to spend time together and learn something new. Mix It Up! workshops, meanwhile, give junior artists the tools they need to create art in a variety of media.
Older kids: Art outreach that matches professional artists with local schools for extended residencies connects kids with mentors who aim to challenge and inspire.

Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, Millville

Little kids: Families with tiny visitors in tow can grab a Creation Station guide, packed with activities that relate to the exhibits. Bring the completed booklet to the museum store and score a prize.
Older kids: Unleash your creativity during free family workshops, play games like jumbo checkers & dominoes and view unique glass artworks on display.
