Adult Programs

Learning around art isn't just for children. Join us at the LSU Museum of Art for these programs to expand your creative and cultural knowledge.


Material Exploration

Want to experience our exhibitions and permanent collection in an expanded way? The museum is launching a series of workshops to connect material and process with work on display in the galleries called Material Exploration. Through this series, participants receive a quality introduction to material and technique taught by professional, local artists. Limited class sizes offer an opportunity for maximum engagement through individual learning and discussion.
