Join us on February 3rd at 12pm for Mini Masters at the Morris Graves Museum of Art! Children will gain inspiration as we delve into the art and minds of Disney Pixar’s animators through viewing books, watching a short film, and exploring the various animation styles in the museum wide exhibition “Artists who Animate”. Children will have the opportunity to create a puppet character, as well as draw characters and a setting for your own cartoon!

Join us on March 3rd at 12pm for Mini Masters at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. This month at Mini Masters children can play wild animal safari games, hear a read aloud of “A Hippopotamusn’t” by J. Patrick Lewis, and explore the safari through landscape photographs featured in Jim Lowry’s exhibition “Saying Yes to Africa”. Then stick around to create safari hat and binoculars, cut and paste to make an ABC pattern lion, and choose a safari animal to paint. Our art educators are here to help you create your own mini masterpiece!
