Family Weekend Classes

We offer two family weekend classes!  Our popular Eat Better Art cooking class, along with our new Creativity Club! Come think, play and create with us.


Eat Better Art Cooking Classes

Now in our 3rd year, we are happy to continue our artful cooking classes in partnership with Jimbo’s . . .Naturally.  These classes are designed to bring parents and children together in the kitchen as they learn about good nutrition and create delicious dishes! Eat Better Art offers families a new way to think, play and create inside the Museum.

Each child and adult pair will create seasonal dishes with the assistance of our experienced teaching chefs. At the end of class, participants will be able to enjoy the delicious foods that they made. Participants will also be able to take home the recipes and the special art project they complete!

Eat Better Art classes are held from 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm. Please designate your preferred class time when registering. 

One parent/child pair costs $40 for members and $45 for non-members, per class. 
Classes are appropriate for children ages 4 – 12. 

Upcoming 2016 classes:

Gather Around the Table | Saturday, December 10
Family, friends, and food are the best part of the holidays!

*Recipes may contain nuts, gluten, dairy, and eggs
