(Victor Valley)– The Victor Valley Museum will host a series of Youth Art Workshops this summer for children age 8 years and above. With the theme “Discover Your Own Backyard,” each 2-hour workshop will focus on an animal from the High Desert, past and present. The workshops, co-sponsored by the Artists of the High Desert, are scheduled on Saturdays from 2 to 4 p.m. Registration is required.
Participants will draw, paint, sculpt, and learn about prehistoric camels on July 30. On August 6, the focus will shift to the present with the Mojave rattlesnake. The final workshop will showcase all the students’ art. Each student can complete a keepsake portfolio of their works.
Individual workshops are $35 each ($25 for museum members). Limited scholarships are available. For more information and to register, call the Victor Valley Museum at (760) 240-2111.
