The Mennello Museum of American Art is hosting Day of Art, and we invite elementary, middle, and high school students to explore art and be artful at the museum!

We invite young artists to step inside the museum for a full day of inspiring art projects. The museum is all yours as you learn new methods and make new friends!

Elementary students will create large-scale abstract sculptures, paint with watercolors and oil pastels and learn how to draw the world around you. Students will be led by art teacher extraordinaire, Melissa Rudge.  Melissa Rudge is a visual arts teacher with Orange County Public Schools.
