FREE FAMILY DAY

 

SUNDAY, MAY 17 | 2:00–4:00 P.M.

 

FREE Family Days provide participants of all ages with structured activities for creating art using a variety of materials. Activities are designed to be simple enough for ages 4 and up to enjoy, yet complex enough that more experienced young artists can take their projects to another level. Families will have fun exploring new media and concepts while finding inspiration within Laumeier’s natural environment, temporary exhibitions and the Permanent Collection. Supported by PNC Arts Alive.
