Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your own art museum? If you had your own museum what would you collect or share with others? Design, build, and curate a miniature model of your incredible museum. Add you collections and share your vision with others!
Families will have the opportunity to collect patterns or tangles of lines, dots and values in your own Zentangle, or create your own “painting” using collections of items such as bottle caps, wine corks and crayons. Museum educators will work with you and your child to offer vocabulary, guidance and instruction in your dioramas, “paintings” and Zentangle drawings. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of art-making, learning and exploring your local art museum!
