Family Art Day – Travel to Japan
October 15, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The Museum will be having a family art day on Saturday, October 15 from 10-1. This is part of our Travel the World series and we will be “traveling” to Japan on this day. The event will feature crafts from Japan and we will have some snacks available, too. Admission is free, but signing up ahead of time is very helpful for us.
Family Art Days are designed for children ages 6 and up with their parents, guardians or mentors.
According to the Child Development Institute, “Families can create a harmonious balance in their children’s lives when they make provisions for the arts.” The site goes on to offer lots of ways that parents can incorporate art in their families’ lives and closes by advising, “The most important ingredient in the recipe is your interest. Be there to appreciate and encourage during every step of the creative process.” What better way to spend quality time with your child than to come to the Academy Art Museum and work together on a project? The Family That Makes Art Together Gets SmART Together!
