ArtVille Academy

Upcoming sessions - new dates coming soon!

9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Thursdays

Are you looking for an opportunity for your preschooler(s) to build skills and prepare for school? We have a learning adventure made for your child(ren) at ArtVille Academy. This eight-week series offers an engaging curriculum combining literacy, art, science and math for children ages 3 to 5.


Class times

Classes take place 9 a.m. to noon on Thursdays. Each week children will be introduced to different themes and activities to inspire a curiosity for learning and develop skills needed for school.


Program mission

The i.d.e.a. Museum is devoted to early childhood learning opportunities, therefore, ArtVille Academy aims to help young children and their families prepare for a smooth and successful transition into school. Each series introduces a new curriculum for returning participants.

Next sessions

We are currently working on program enhancements and developing plans for the next sessions (dates TBD). Registration info will be posted soon.

Additionally, the museum is offering an ArtVille Academy Kindergarten Boot Camp July 29 – Aug. 2. Registration info is posted on our classes page. Please register by Monday, July 22.
