Las Artes de Mexico will inspire colorful activities, stories, songs, and games in this class for kids ages 6-12. Participants will discover white skeletons, green jade, and elaborate red costumes, and become world travelers as they explore the beautiful art, language, and culture of Mexico!

Pre-teens ages 9–12 will have a blast discovering the UMFA behind the scenes by touring the Museum, investigating objects and materials, participating in hands-on art activities, and curating their own exhibition.
