Saturday November 11th, 2-4pm
Children and families are invited to Family Arts Day at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on Saturday, November 11th at 2:00pm for an afternoon of mask decorating and costume design inspired by Micki Flatmo’s exhibition Dating Chaos- What to Wear! Bring the whole family for an afternoon of art-making, learning and exploring your local art museum!
Families will have the opportunity to view Micki Flatmo’s exhibition and then create their own masks and costumes! Use paint, beads, sequins, feathers and more to decorate a mask that expresses a mood or character. Then, lie down and relax while your body is traced for you to draw on a costume… Then make your costume out of paper! Museum educators will work with you and your child to apply elements of design, paper folding techniques to express a character.
