Bring the kids every second Saturday for fun with a Western and wildlife twist! Enjoy different themed activities each month, including story time in the galleries, a kid-friendly guided tour, a make & take art project, and a chance to explore the museum with a family activity guide.

When school is out, fun is in at The James! Visit the gallery and get messy in our children’s studio with artmaking inspired by the museum’s collection. Explore the art of watercolor painting and try different techniques; such as watercolor resist and salt texture. Drop in at your convenience and join the fun. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Come get messy at art camp!
Let your imagination soar as you explore the museum’s galleries, create original artworks, and showcase your masterpieces in a special exhibition each week. Learn about the museum’s collection while honing skills in drawing, painting, sculpting and more! Led by professional art instructors, camps inspire out-of-the-box thinking, art appreciation, and hands-on practice with a variety of art materials and methods.
