Drop-in Art Activities: People, Portraits & Power


Saturday, January 5, 2013Sunday, January 27, 2013


10:00 AM–03:00 PM on Saturday, Sunday

Our faces can tell a lot about us. Perhaps you know someone with a noble nose, energetic eyes, or a merry mouth! In January, we will re-create our favorite faces in imaginative ways to help us learn more about ourselves and the people we care about! Our inspiration this month will come from the special exhibition, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe.

Every Saturday and Sunday! No registration is required for these free activities. Drop-in, make and take a fantastic piece of art home with you!

Join museum educators as they help families create artful projects related to the collection, special exhibitions, and family programs. Check out our monthly themes and visit often to participate in a different project each weekend!
