TMA recognizes that family financial circumstances may sometimes limit the accessibility of art camp programs for some children. We want to ensure that our classes and camps are open to as many young artists as possible. For this reason, the Trout Museum of Art has established a scholarship fund for our classes and camps. Scholarship funding is used to decrease the financial burden of sending a child to participate in one of our classes for those families that would otherwise not be able to afford the cost of participation.
The Young Audiences Fine Arts series engages young children with free interactive performances, demonstrations, and art projects led by local artists. This program is a wonderful opportunity for elementary school-aged children and their families to enjoy and learn from a wide range of arts experiences. Learn More
