Big Picture In the House (VIRTUAL) Big picture logo

The Figge's Big Picture program is back for the summer!  Join us for five weeks of virtual FREE programming streamed live from the museum. Each Wednesday from July 8 through August 5 you are invited to join the LIVE program from 10:30-11:30 a.m. via Zoom (registration is required to get the Zoom link - just click on the date you wish to register for below). Each week will feature a new lesson and hands-on activity based around Figge exhibitions and collections. A link to the video lesson will be available for viewing after the live session each week. This program is suggested for ages 6-12 years old (younger children are required to have an adult helper). Register for as many or as little sessions as you choose or view the lessons at your leisure once the video link is posted. 


Boy Scout Programs

Boy Scouts of all ages can have fun learning experiences while earning arts and crafts badges/patches at the Figge Art Museum. A guided tour of the Figge's permanent galleries and traveling exhibitions is included in each workshop.  Badge workshops are 3-hour events and include completion of all requirements for the particular badge the boys are working towards.

We also offer non-badge workshops through our Partner Program.  Scout packs can schedule one of these 2-hour events that includes a guided museum tour and a studio art experience.  Activities accomplished in a Partner Program can be often be applied toward one of the art badges in the Boy Scout manual. Registration is required a minimum of 2 weeks before the scheduled event.  A minimum of 10 Scouts/workshop is required. Call 563.345-6654 or to schedule a workshop.
