Since the 1980's, the Coachella Valley History Museum is has offered the community the "Young at Art" program with the express purpose of bringing art instruction to students ages 8-14 during a three week period in the summer. The goal of "Young at Art" is to instruct students about the elements and skills of the fine arts. Having an understanding of color, texture, shape and line will enrich a child’s appreciation for the arts. This year the themes will be watercolor, multimedia and multimedia sculpture.
