Work together with your kids to trace each other’s shadows, then go collage-crazy filling them in with your thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams.

Snow Day

Be sure you and your kids dress warm because we’re hosting a snowman building competition in our sculpture garden. Don’t like the cold? No worries. Join us inside for hot chocolate and paper snowflake making.

Second Sundays is a program for families that takes place each month at the Museum. Visitors are invited to take a tour of a featured gallery with a Museum educator and participate in an exhibit-based art making activity, often with the help of a visiting artist. Explore the Museum galleries, make meaningful connections to the artwork and build cool creations to take home. Each month we can become sculptors, filmmakers, photographers, animators, dancers and more with projects that are cool enough for kids and still intriguing for older ages.
 For more information about the educational programs at the Museum, contact Education Coordinator Carissa Brandt  or call 814.459.5477
