Featured Programs & Event

April 23, 2017

We're opening the Art Studio early for our friends with sensory sensitivities.

Come explore your creative side in the Art Studio!  

In the exhibit, you can cut shapes and letters to create a design or a poster using the silk screen printing process. There are easels with white paper and paints that are the colors of the rainbow. There's also a clay station where you can try some clay building techniques such as pinch pots and coiling. 

At 9am, program participants will have early access to the exhibit for an hour before the Museum opens to the public at 10am. At 10am the fun continues in a private play space.

Program fee includes Museum admission for the whole day.

Limited availability. Advance ticket purchase required.
