On the Road – Introduce the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum in your classroom or group meeting via 90 minute educational experiences on the artist, his work, and sculptural techniques. Optional hands-on art activities are a great way for participants to apply what they’ve learned. For information and to register, call or email Andrea Ondish at firstname.lastname@example.org or (989) 964-7096.
Can’t come to the Museum? We will provide a 90 minute educational experience through teleconferencing from the Museum classroom to your classroom or wherever you are. Museum staff will show you through a PowerPoint presentation and an amazing video on the metal casting process that Marshall Fredericks described as “Magic!,” images of Marshall Fredericks and his work, and we will finish with a hands-on art activity like sculpting in modeling compound or wire. For information and to register, call or email Andrea Ondish at email@example.com or (989) 964-7096.
Summer art camp at the Museum is a must for any child age 8 to 18. In it’s 10th year, the summer art camp program sells itself because participants want to come back year after year. Every student becomes an artist for a week, and every student is nurtured and encouraged by highly skilled art educators. Look at the photos from last year’s summer art camps and you will see why your child will want to be a part of this creative life-changing experience.

The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum Artist-in-Residence program, established in 2015, brings in a professional visual artist that creates new and unique experiences for university students, faculty and the public. The Museum envisions this program as a way for SVSU students and the general public to interact with and learn from contemporary living artists.
The Museum offers a free one-hour tour “blitz” that includes a guided gallery tour and art activity each year. We invite all K-12 schools and home schooled youth to participate.
