Be inspired for family fun in the new year at the Stark Museum of Art Family Day on Saturday, January 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families are invited to explore the museum and experience art together through fun activities specially planned for children of all ages. Admission and activities are FREE!
Young artists and their grown-ups will have the opportunity to utilize their creativity while participating in activities that engage multiple senses and discover connections to the artwork on view throughout the museum. Tiny artists ages 5 and under and their grown-ups will find age-appropriate, art-related play and art making in the Tot Spot. Guests can also take part in an adventure through the galleries while completing a scavenger hunt and earn a prize at the end. Families also don’t want to miss the art-inspired photo spot and the opportunity to observe artist Calvin Carter as he sketches in the galleries.
Also on view in the Community Art Gallery will be “ART: It’s Elementary,” an exhibition of original works of art from local kindergarten through third grade students. The recognition ceremony for students featured in the exhibition will take place at 2 p.m. in the Museum lobby.
Family Day will also include activity stations hosted by our community partners from The W.H. Stark House, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, Heritage House, Train Depot and others.
