Arts Interact. Special docent-led tours of the exhibitions designed to spark conversation between children and family members.
Family Guides. Information on the exhibition along with questions and discussion topics for children and parents.

March 1 | Finger Puppets

Join us in creating a menagerie of felt finger puppets. Make a collection of them for you and your friends to share. They are easy to make, colorful, and fun for everyone!

April 5 | Cosmic Mobiles

Historically mobiles have inspired the likes of artists, poets, and musicians, and now they can inspire you too. Come create a one-of-a-kind mobile that will brighten up your day, even if the sun isn’t shining.

May 3 | Crayon Drip Paintings

Are you tired of using crayons to color pictures? If so, try melting them down and watch the magic happen. Transform your canvas into something that even Jackson Pollock would envy.
