Curator welcome at 4:45 p.m. and guided tours at 5 and 5:15 p.m. Please note that part 1 will conclude by 6:30 p.m.

The second part of this workshop will take place on April 10th and will feature a professional teaching artist who will lead you through performing arts, social studies, language arts, and visual arts integrated activities.
