Family with kids creating art

Looking for a new afterschool stop? Why not try the art studio?

Designed for ages eight through ten, this program is a great way to add more art to your kids’ routines and get them involved in something fun, educational, and creative. We’ll spend time in the galleries learning about Julie Alpert’s installation Altars, Keepsakes, Squiggles, and Bows, then head into the studio to flex those creative muscles and create something inspired by the collection. (Don’t worry—we’ll take care of the clean-up!)

Whether the day’s project is assembling a paper collage, creating keepsake containers, or reinventing wall art, your little artists are sure to find something to love here at the museum. And with five miles of trails, expansive galleries, restaurant Eleven, and the nearby coffee bar, you just might too.

Come make Crystal Bridges your new afterschool routine—sign up today!

Tickets are $45 ($36/members), register online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 to reserve your spot today.
