Family Fun Day!

Saturday, August 14, 2021

10:00am - 12:00pm

Looking for something creative and hands-on that you can enjoy as a family? Join us for the Museum's new Family Fun Days! 

Held from 10 am to 12 noon the second Saturday of the month, these events feature a cool new theme each month. 

This month's theme is Under the Sea Oil Pastel Relief Paintings!

Dive in and join us in making combination oil pastel and watercolor painted coral reef pieces. Watch the science of oil and water interact as your ocean-scape comes into view! All ages welcome. All supplies provided.

This event is FREE for members and $5 for families who aren't members yet. 

No registration required - so drop in and enjoy creating an art activity together safely in the Museum's sanitized Auditorium.
