Wellin Kids is a studio art program for families and children organized by the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College. The program connects works of art to fun, kid-friendly art projects. In each program, children will learn about an artist, practice thinking and talking about art, and use their creativity in guided art-making projects.
Wellin Kids programs are led by Wellin Museum docents in collaboration with the museum's education staff. Our docents are Hamilton College students with varying majors and backgrounds who act as educational guides through our exhibitions and collections.
COVID-19 Information: Wellin Kids events are open to families and children ages 5 and up who are fully vaccinated (and boosted once eligible). Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Masks must be worn for this event. Please note, food and drink will not be served at this event.
