What To Expect

12:30 – 3:30 PM 

Experience the Crocker's world-renowned collection and diverse exhibitions through discussion and artmaking, and let great art of the past and present inspire your own creative expression. Most classes include at least one gallery visit to view the permanent collection or a special exhibition. The Museum's highly trained staff and instructors are committed to providing students of all experience levels with a supportive and engaging experience. Advance registration required.

Celebrate California Poppy Day at the Crocker! Observe the many paintings in the Museum’s collection that depict the state flower to analyze the shapes that make up the poppy’s form. Afterward, create several drawings from observation with actual poppies and choose one to develop into a painting. Participants must provide some supplies.
