KIDS MAKE ART with the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum

Saturday, February 6, March 5, April 2, 1-3 pm
Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center

KIDS MAKE ART is a once-a-month first Saturday program offering opportunities for the whole family to connect with and make art at the Museum! By turning a viewing experience into a time for hands-on participation, children of all ages can enhance their observation skills and use their total brain, all while having fun working on a project with their parents, guardians, and peers! Children require parent/guardian supervision during the program, and we encourage everyone to take part in the activities – adults and children alike! Art activities led by local artist KATHERINE DEVINE begin at 1:00pm. Movement activities led by local artist POLLY BRANCH begin at 2:15pm. Activities are designed for participants of all ages. KIDS MAKE ART is free and for the whole family. Registration not required.
