Create incredible works of art using the forces of nature—wind, erosion, and magnetism—during this drop-in Family Day.

Celebrate Ruth Duckworth’s love of nature and explore how the same natural forces that move mountains and create canyons can be used to make art! Experiment with straws and colorful inks to make “wind paintings,” use a water and sand table to play with erosion, and build your own magnetic drawing pad.

FREE, drop-in. Art-making supplies and other materials are provided. Family programs are best for kids 4–12, but all ages are welcomed! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
