Family Days at the Smart Museum are designed to celebrate the creative potential in all of us. With new projects every month, Family Days offer opportunities for kids and their caregivers to create together and connect with one another. Each program is unique, fun, and free, emphasizing invention, improvisation, and hands-on creativity.
This Saturday, fight the winter chill by creating warm colorful weavings! The yarn weavings will be about the size of a book—perfect for making your favorite stuffed animals cozy. Or, sew your creations together to start a family quilt. The activities are inspired by fiber art in Monochrome Multitudes by Sheila Hicks and Claire Zeisler.
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.
