Arts and Literature Laboratory in Madison for Ages 3-18
Arts and Literature Laboratory
2021 Winnebago St, Madison, WI 53704
Arts + Literature Laboratory, a contemporary art gallery on the east side of Madison, offers a comprehensive arts and literacy education program for children and teens ages 3-18. We also offer classes for homeschooling children and teens, as well as adult programming.
Fine arts classes include 2d and 3d experiences: watercolor and acrylic painting, drawing, contemporary collage and assemblage, and sculpture. Literacy classes include playwriting, poetry writing, and comic book making. Adult classes include memoir writing, illustration and drawing, painting, and children’s book writing.
The benefits of arts-integrated education extend well beyond its incredible value as an outlet for creative expression; arts programs promote literacy by building vocabulary, phonological awareness, and critical thinking! We inspire young people, teens, and adults to use their imagination and to create. We believe it’s not enough to inspire students to want to learn. We create a welcoming and open space for them to think creatively, discover new practices and modes for expression, and offer a community space for all to connect.

UW Green Bay Studio Art Camps
Summer Art Studio Camps: Celebrating 59 years of commitment to visual arts excellence, the Summer Art Studio offers an in-depth experience for middle and high school students. Classes are offered in a variety of media and subject areas and are all held in the well-equipped art studios of UW-Green Bay. Middle school campers will experience two unique mediums. They will have the opportunity to choose a morning and an afternoon class. High school campers focus in only one area, allowing for an immersion experience in that art genre. In addition, there are many opportunities for interaction with other campers and faculty. Critiques, slide lectures, field trips, and a final exhibition all encourage exchange of ideas and styles.
Faculty and guest instructors are drawn from the ranks of UW-Green Bay and the surrounding region. All are highly-respected, professional artists who are also excellent teachers.
