Art Encounters

Art Encounters encourages youth and families to see, connect, and create art via Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center.

Take & Make Kits

Discover your inner creativity at your own pace, in your space, even as a beginner!

Stop by the Education Center and start encountering art with a free art kit. Each kit contains all the materials for a straightforward art project, with written directions and a short how-to video. This free program runs concurrently with changing exhibitions by Michigan artists and includes art-making experiences for visitors. 

New kit release date Saturdays:  

  • August 27 - Printmaking
  • September 24 - Fork Painting
  • October 22 - Creature Creation
  • November 19 - Thankful Wreaths 

Stop by our new location in the heart of downtown Lansing to pick up a kit — or stay and make a day of it in our Education Center! 

Open hours 11 AM - 3 PM
Parking is accessible on the weekends.
