The ArtZone

While the ArtZone is currently closed for drop-in visits, we have several great ways for you and your family to make art, including scheduled Virtual ArtZone or In-Person ArtZone visits!

The ArtZone

The ArtZone is a drop-in art studio for visitors of all ages to come in and get creative! Each month features exciting special projects plus our regular art stations: painting, printmaking, drawing, and collage. 

ArtZone Fee

The ArtZone is free to all, thanks to our generous sponsors.

ArtZone Hours

Closed for drop-in visits. Please make a reservation!

Art @ Home Kits

Free Art @ Home Kits are available in the lobby for pickup. These kits contain various art materials and art project ideas for you to get creative at home! 

Special thank you to Art for Children sponsors for making Art @ Home Kits possible. 

ArtZone Reservations

The ArtZone is still closed for regular hours due to COVID-19 but we are now offering Virtual ArtZone and in-person ArtZone groups by appointment on Saturdays only. 

Pick up a FREE Art @ Home Kit at the museum, select from one of our fun art projects, and our instructor will guide you through the project step-by-step either at home or in the ArtZone. Both the art supplies and the ArtZone activity are FREE, but you must make a reservation at least 1 week in advance. 

 At home groups are limited to 10 children and in-person groups are limited to 6 children + 2 adults (masks and social distancing required). There are 3 one-hour time slots each Saturday that you can select from! After submitting this form, a staff member will get back to you within 1-2 business days.

ArtZone Features

ArtZone Library

A small collection of children's story books, books about artists, art activity books, and more is housed in the ArtZone. Visitors may browse the books, read to their families, or use them for inspiration for their own unique art activities. Monthly Story Time features readings and art activities inspired by the monthly books and themes.

Would you like to contribute to our growing ArtZone Library? Contact Anissa Ford, Education Director (850) 627-5023. 


A partnership with the Gadsden County Public Library, Story Time features readings and art activities inspired by monthly books and themes.
