The museum hosts an art class each week using a different medium, from clay, to paint, to printmaking. Today's class used marbles dipped in paint, and fingers got a little messy.
The students start each class with a tour through the galleries, and teacher Whitney Johnston says it helps kids connect the museum's collection to the artwork they are about to create.
"I'm a visual person and I think kids are too," she says. "When they see these huge masters works I think it makes them want to try the same idea."
The classes continue throughout the summer, for a list you can visit the museum's website.
