Let’s face it—adding art to your kids’ lives can be a lot of work. So why not let us take a turn?
Designed for ages eight through ten, this program is a great way to supplement a home art curriculum without all the stress of wrangling supplies and project lists. 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.
