Paint your art out

Paint Pony Express Classes Offered throughout July. Children ages 4-11 can learn from art experts about the symbols and myths that cultures use to pass on traditions and information. Paint Pony Express encourages children to use art, movement, music and storytelling to explore the exhibits in the galleries and then create their own art in the museum’s Shelton Art Studio.
The classes run from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout July. Led by artist-teachers Janice Duncan and Jeny Stoesz, each class is age-specific, with Tuesdays for ages 4-5, Wednesdays for ages 6-8 and Thursdays for ages 9-11.

Week One, July 10-12, will focus on the exhibition Pinturas de Fe: the Retablo Tradition in Mexico and New Mexico. Special visiting artist-in-residence Jerry Vigil will explore this traditional Mexican artform with students.
July 17-19, Paint Pony Express will draw from the African artwork in the exhibit Resonance from the Past: African Sculpture from the New Orleans Museum of Art.
The final week, July 24-26, will highlight the western art of Bill Gollings: Cowboy Artist, Paintings from the Sherry Nicholas Collection.
