Classes and Camps

Classes and Camps for Kids of All Ages

Randall Museum classes and camps offer adults and children an opportunity to explore a variety of art and science subjects including ceramics, woodworking, arts and crafts, and theater arts, along with technical, physical and biological sciences, and more. Students learn and work in newly refurbished workshops using specialized tools and equipment.  Adults and kids receive guidance from experienced instructors.

Drop-In Activities

Drop-in classes allow participants the flexibility of participating in one-time workshops without having to sign up in advance for an ongoing multiple week class. Drop-in classes are ideal for families, visiting grandparents and friends to get a chance to share the experience of creating with their children and grandchildren. It’s also a way for kids to try out a science or art subject and learn something new.

Our drop-in classes serve ages 14 months through adults. Please check the ages and adult participation requirements for each drop-in activity you are interested in.
