Bring the kids every second Saturday for fun with a Western and wildlife twist!

COMING SOON! Come create artwork at The James Museum! We are offering a six-session studio art program for homeschooled students beginning in the Fall. This program will be best suited for children ages 6-11. Students will explore a wide range of materials in the classroom as well as spend time in the museum’s galleries. All students will have hands on experiences with painting, working with clay, drawing from observation, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed media.
COMING SOON! Come take a casual stroll through the galleries with your infant or toddler on a 30 minute docent led tour. Experience the collection with other children and their caretakers in a relaxed environment. Afterwards, head to the children’s studio for some creative “playtime” to simulate the five senses along with coffee, tea, and conversation. This program is intended to meet the needs of both caretakers and their infants/toddlers.
Call for teen volunteers! Do you love art? Are you interested in working at a museum or exploring careers in education? Either way, we want you here! The James Museum has opportunities for teen volunteers to gain experience in a museum setting by assisting with educational programs and events. For more information, email email@example.com.
