Gari Melchers Home & Studio is a unique and enriching destination for all ages.
Youth groups are welcome at Gari Melchers Home & Studio! The museum offers unique experiences for all kinds of groups and ages. Art clubs, gifted programs, classrooms, home schoolers, and summer camps are encouraged to consider spending a morning or afternoon of learning, creativity, and fun at Belmont.
These thoughtfully curated classes celebrate the experience of discovery. Preschool Palette nurtures your child’s creative spirit through engaging books, garden walks, and colorful process-based sensory and art explorations. Themes change monthly.
Gari Melchers Home & Studio partners with the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Richmond Chapter, to offer a small, welcoming program that combines sensory-rich and interactive guided discussions in Gari Melchers’ studio with a related art-making experience afterwards.
Since 2011, GMH&S has invited visually impaired or blind children and their families to participate in a Beeping Egg Hunt. This annual event is reminiscent of the Easter parties Corinne Melchers, with her husband’s encouragement, would host for local children each year at Belmont, complete with Punch and Judy shows, egg rolls, fanciful invitations, and plenty of favors.
