Hickory Museum of Art

The Hickory Museum of Art offers many opportunities for children to explore art. They have dozens of classes throughout the year, plus an extensive summer camp program.

While walking through the museum (a free and fun thing to do) there are several chances for children to become better acquainted with the art. Artie is the children’s mascot at Hickory Museum of Art, and anywhere you see Artie is a great place to stop and play:

  • On the first floor, you can learn how to weave at the first Artie station.
  • On the second floor, you can make your own folk art picture.
  • On the third floor, you can reconstruct a folk art painting.
  • There is also a “Little Hands Big  Hands Children’s Gallery”. It is located on the second floor, and children can read a book, put on a puppet show, or complete puzzles.

The Education Department at the Museum also hosts birthday parties! The parties include:

  • 2 hours in the party room
  • 1 hour of art activities based on a theme you choose (8 available)
  • All art materials
  • A Party Host, who will lead the activities
  • Birthday child’s name is printed in the newsletter
  • Group mural painting on fabric for the birthday child
  • Tablecloths
