January at the BMA

/ Kids and Families - Museum Studio

A new year means an new lineup of exciting programs and events at the Birmingham Museum of Art! Step out of the cold and into our galleries where you’ll find inspiration for a creative 2019. Save the date for these upcoming January events.

  1. Studio School Classes. There are still spots available in a few January Studio School classes! Early birds who want to explore their creativity before lunch will enjoy Morning Makers. Learn from professional artist Susan Vitali as she walks you through a variety of techniques including watercolor painting, oil painting, printmaking, and hand-built ceramic-making. 

  2. Japanese Heritage Festival. Celebrate the rich cultural history of Japan at our Japanese Heritage Festival. Using Japanese art as inspiration, the BMA will explore this beautiful culture through special art activities, tours of the Japanese gallery, and screenings of Anime. Highlighting the day will be a traditional tea ceremony demonstration by the Chado Urasenke Tankokai Birmingham Association. 

    The Family Festivals Series is presented by Medical Properties Trust. 

  3. Slow Art Sunday. Slow food, slow living, slow… art? Unlock the secrets of works in the Museum’s collection by cultivating the art of looking slowly. Our docents ask and answer questions to help guide your slow art experience and foster conversation. Discover a new work from the collection every Sunday from 2-3PM.
