Two New Community Art Programs for Kids

BATON ROUGE – This summer, the LSU Museum of Art, located in the Shaw Center for the Arts at 100 Lafayette Street in downtown Baton Rouge, will offer two new community arts programs aimed at teaching children in the community the value of the arts.


Art Explorations will take place June 13, 20, 27 and July 11 at the museum, with a theme of “Look, Learn, Explore and Create,” designed for K-5 English language learners, their families and caregivers. Join museum educators for an exciting program that will allow students to look at in depth, learn and explore artwork in the museum collection, followed by a hands-on art activity. A variety of different projects will be presented from collage, to sculpture, printmaking  and much more. Space is limited, and this is not a drop-off program.  For more information, contact Coordinator of School and Community Programs Lucy Perera at This program is a partnership with the LSU Museum of Art and the East Baton Rouge Parish School System English Language Learners Program.


On Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. during July, a site located near McKinley High School in South Baton Rouge, and another site in Scotlandville at Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church, 9450 Scenic Highway, will come alive under the direction of Perera.
