The Castellani Art Museum offers a variety of engaging programs for all ages. From public tours and folklife workshops to art camps for kids and lecture series for adults, there are opportunities to explore art, history, and cultural traditions. Join in the creative learning experiences at every level for everyone!

Programs for Everyone
CAM Public Tour- Every first Saturday, drop in for a free 45-minute public tour followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. Public tours feature a broad exploration of CAM exhibitions or focus on a particular exhibition. All are welcome to join a CAM staff member to learn about our wonderful galleries and exhibitions.
Held every first Saturday of the month unless otherwise specified.

Folklife Workshops- Castellani Folklife Workshops are small, hands-on programs led by local folk artists and tradition bearers that engage participants in the diverse cultural heritage of our region. Participants learn the meanings, materials, and techniques of a cultural tradition practiced locally in a structured lesson, where they create their own work under the guidance and instruction of the workshop teacher. These family-friendly programs provide an opportunity for local folk artists to share their cultural knowledge and practices with a broader audience and for community members to celebrate cultural exchange. Held throughout the year.

Children's Programs

Art Express- Children 6 to 12 participate in fun-filled art activities that involve hands-on art-making and gallery exploration. Each workshop includes a short talk highlighting a child-friendly Museum artwork. A CAM teaching artist works closely with participants to help them create a customized work of art to take home. Held in Fall and Spring.

Kids n’ Art Summer Camp- Experience a one-of-a-kind visual arts and theater adventure at our camp, designed to enrich children aged 5-12. Engage in hands-on art projects inspired by the impressive collection at CAM, and let creativity take center stage as campers craft their own unique theater performances. Camp runs in five weekly sessions from July until August. Scholarships will be available based on need.

Adult Programs 

CAM Meets- CAM Meets is an engaging lecture series that provides space for learning in history and art-making topics. The CAM invites diverse local artists, historians, and museum professionals to explore art through different perspectives.
