The Peninsula Fine Arts Center enchants aesthetes of all ages with rotating art exhibits, live performances of music and poetry, and a medley of skill-building classes. In addition to full access to exhibitions and invitations to exclusive events, a membership provides aspiring artists—from pintsize Picassos to middle-aged Matisses—with discounts on educational sessions at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center's studio art school, with class offerings such as oil painting, pottery, watercolors, and Play-Doh pointillism.

Current showcases of creativity include The Virginia Landscape: Works on Paper_—featuring a varied collection of artwork depicting the Commonwealth—and _Unbroken Thread: The Art of Phillip Koch, a survey of Koch’s paintings featuring environmental themes and a tribute to the world’s largest ball of twine. Children will don berets and grow thin, sophisticated mustaches as they engage in enthralling activities in the Hands on for Kids Gallery, an interactive art space.

Peninsula Fine Arts Center

Peninsula Fine Arts Center isn't a passive art museum where guests stare silently at paintings and statues. Instead, the center uses rotating exhibitions of paintings, photographs, and pottery to inspire visitors to create their own artwork. To that end, the exhibiting artists often teach in the center's Studio Art School. Classes range from single-day workshops to 10-week sessions, during which instructors might teach small groups to paint with watercolors or change out a flat pottery wheel. The instructors keep their schedule balanced, leading classes that suit all ages and skill levels. Other classes, such as Little Helping Hands Adventure in Clay, let kids and adults create artwork together.

Kids don't need to sign up for classes to try out their art skills, however. In the Hands On for Kids interactive gallery, young patrons draw on a chalkboard wall, build with blocks, and complete various projects inspired by the exhibitions.

Tonya B. · February 12, 2017
Small, but beautiful. The kids area is great with hands on learning about art.

Small but quality work in a well flowing environment. A place for kids to play and a nice gift shop with local artists. The museum also offers a bunch of art classes.
