Pretend City Children's Museum, is a non-profit organization which stimulates and nurtures the intellectual and creative curiosity of children in an innovative community environment. Designed as a small city, with a grocery store, construction site, art studio, house, café, bank, emergency services, health center and farm, Pretend City will be a familiar environment in which children infant through eight-years-old will have joyful opportunities to build problem solving and critical thinking skills, develop creativity and begin a life long love of learning.
The Art Studio is a hands-on exhibit that offers Process Art experiences that encourage imagination, creativity and discovery. We strive to foster an environment that emphasizes the process of art making over the product created. Each week the Art Studio features a different Art Studio Session related to our museum programming and special celebrations. Children will explore painting, drawing, collage, printing, beading, and clay as they get hands on with a variety of special materials and mediums all while learning new techniques and making connections with art and its relation to the world around them.
