Each year the RAFFMA organizes the Summer Egyptian Art Workshop for Kids. This popular program draws more than 20 sixth-grade students from neighboring communities throughout San Bernardino County. The workshop is conducted during the months of July or August and includes many hands-on activities as well as educational lectures and special tours of the art museum's extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities.

Participating students learn about Egyptian history, culture and art. Led by trained docents, children participate in a variety of art projects including staged-archeological digs, molding clay figurines and making beads out of authentic ancient Egyptian molds. In the process of learning about Egypt through art, students also learn basic art concepts and vocabulary that are then applied to each of their hands-on projects.

The Museum staff incorporates museum education to create the workshop curriculum. The hard work, dedication and creative imagination of all the participants result in a fun learning environment, which opens an entirely new world of art to the young minds.
