Art To Go

The Museum's Art to Go program continues through the spring. Last season, over 1300 area residents enjoyed Art to Go classes and activities. Art to Go is an outreach program designed to enrich the lives of special adult populations. Museum teachers travel to retirement homes, senior centers, special needs facilities and neighborhood service centers to bring engaging and meaningful art projects to their clients. It is also possible for participants to visit the Museum and receive a guided tour. Following the tour, they will be able to create related art projects.

The Art to Go program can be tailored to meet the needs of individual organizations. Museum educators develop site-specific curriculum plans to ensure that class content is relevant and accessible to all participants.

Art To Go is provided free of charge. For more information, contact Constance Del Nero,  Director of ArtReach and Community Programs at


From Viewer to Doer (formerly "Field Trips for Grownups")

Monday, December 5, 6 - 8pm
Wednesday, December 7, 2 - 4pm
Drawing Studio

Enjoy looking at art? Want to take your Museum viewing experience one step further? Transform yourself from “viewer” to “doer” by taking part in
a special fall workshop. The From Viewer to Doer approach consists of an informal tour/chat about the exhibition(s) on view and the opportunity to work on a related art project. No art experience or “talent” necessary!

Projects are designed to get adults thinking, experimenting, and working with different materials and are not formal art lessons. They are designed to spark creativity and to appeal to novices and professional artists alike.

The Academy Art Museum is offering two new From Viewer to Doer workshops to complement our fall exhibition, The Myth Makers in Maryland: The Mighty Merganser. There is a $10 fee for the workshop payable online or on the day of the workshop. Sign up online or email Constance at
