Making Art: Mom, Dad, and Me

Session 2 July 13 through 16 • 10 am–12 pm
A class for parents and their pre-schoolers, ages 2-5. We will create one-of-a-kind paintings, masks, sculptures, and frames for beginning artists, with storytelling, hands-on art objects, and strolls through the galleries.
Colors of Mexico: July 19 through 22 • 10 am–12:30 pm
Las Artes de Mexico will inspire colorful activities, stories, songs, and games in this class for kids ages 6-12. Participants will discover white skeletons, green jade, and elaborate red costumes, and become world travelers as they explore the beautiful art, language, and culture of Mexico!
Young Curators: July 27 through 30 • 10 am–12:30 pm
Pre-teens ages 9–12 will have a blast discovering the UMFA behind the scenes by touring the Museum, investigating objects and materials, participating in hands-on art activities, and curating their own exhibition.
