First Saturdays for Families is tomorrow!

Come join the fun tomorrow, 11 – 3, at the museum! The first Saturday of each month we highlight a different artist in the museum, and then kids and their families can make their own project based on that artist’s work! All materials are provided FREE by the museum, and there’s never an admission fee here either. This is a perfect creative project for kids 4-12 and their families! Park free across the street in marked spaces in front of our Ceramics Research Center (NE corner of Mill Ave  and 10th Street, in downtown Tempe).

February 7:  This month look in our second floor Americas Gallery for a piece by William Wiley called Making Tracks of Australia.  This piece has hidden pictures of Australia in it. Pick up a learning flyer in the multipurpose room and then track it down! There are fun points on the flyer to discuss with your kids about the art before you head back to the project area to make your own hidden picture map. All materials will be available in the multipurpose room and kids can bring their projects home.

Have a creative weekend!
