Summer Art For Kids

A Hockaday Museum of Art and Kalispell Parks & Recreation collaboration!

Modes of travel through air, on land, and by water is our 2020 summer theme. Through the eyes of historic artists Leonardo da Vinci, JMW Turner, CM Russel, and contemporary artists we will be tranported to different locations throughout time. Scientific and engineering investigations will accompany our artistic journeys as we put some S.T.E.A.M. into our adventures.


Air -- June 23-26

Land -- July 21-24

Water -- August 10-14


Register for these classes through Kalispell Parks & Recreation.
