Delaware Arts and Entertainment Education: Winterthur Museum & Country Estate in Wilmington, Wee Ones, Terrific Tuesdays, lunchtime lectures
Winterthur Museum & Country Estate offers lectures that are often related to the current exhibition.
If you want to study American decorative arts, there is no better place than Winterthur, which offers students—children, matriculated university students and adults interested in personal enrichment—direct access to the very best collection of objects in the world, says associate curator of education Lois Stoehr. Lectures and lunchtime lectures, usually related to the current exhibition, are often offered twice a week. For those with a special interest, the Winterthur Institute offers a two-week immersion in decorative arts. Interior designers and those who want to be can participate in the Chic It Up conference. For kids, Terrific Tuesdays in July and August and Wee Ones at Winterthur introduces young ones to the collection through tours and games. Wilmington, 888-4600, winterthur.org
