Art Adventure Needs your HELP!

If you love art and would like to explore works of art from the Minneapolis Institute of Art with kids at Clover Ridge, consider becoming an Art Adventure volunteer for your child’s classroom! Art Adventure brings reproductions of museum art pieces into the classroom to discuss with students. The program runs throughout February and March and the schedule is flexible. No prior experience or art history knowledge is needed and training is provided by MIA in January.

Here is a short video from MIA about the program. Please contact Katie Lenius at if you are interested in becoming an Art Adventure Volunteer.
