Family Fun Day!

Saturday, October 09, 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 Hispanic Heritage Month!

Let's celebrate with with Dance Espanol presented by Pedro Szalay, the Artistic Director of Southwest Virginia Ballet!

Dance lessons will be offered at 10 am and 10:30 am, and families who participate in either session are welcome to stay and complete an art lesson until 12 p.m.

This month's art lesson will focus on molas, a folk-art from Panama. We'll provide all of the materials to design your own mola-inspired collage.

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.
