Museum to host summer studios

Summer Studios is a unique summer program for children at the Florence County Museum. Each week-long session begins on Monday, focusing on a specific theme. The week ends each Friday with an exhibit of student work along with a reception for family and friends.

Registration for all 2018 Summer Studios sessions is now open. To register, visit the website at flocomuseum.org/summer-studios or the FCM front desk. Space is limited to 15 students per studio session.

Sessions are:
