Youth Art Classes

All youth students must be picked up from class by an adult caregiver.

Sign up early! Most classes have a minimum and maximum class attendance number. Once the maximum number has been reached the class is FULL and no one else can register. If the minimum number is not reached by two business days before the class date, the class will be cancelled. You must call before class starts if you are unable to attend to receive a credit.

Weather Policy: Both adult and youth classes will be postponed when Mason City Community Schools cancel class due to inclement weather. Watch the “closings” list on KIMT as well as our social media and website.

Please call 641-421-3666 if you would like to use a gift certificate, scholarship, or membership discount. MEMBERS – contact the Museum for your online discount code.
