Wake + Create

Our Saturday program for kids ages 6 - 10 and their caregivers

April 13, 2019 10:30 am Griswold House

Join us on select Saturdays for engaging family-oriented programming designed to inspire young minds and satisfy the curiosity of every member of the family. Each Wake + Create is uniquely curated based on a theme, includes a Guided Close Looking Tour of works in the galleries, followed by engaging art making activities geared for ages 6-10, their families and caregivers. Wake + Create is generously supported by the Hartfield Foundation. Tickets are free with the cost of admission.

For this month’s wake+create we will visit the new exhibition “Avant Gardens” and examine how artists represent nature. We’ll take an extra close look at the work of Randal Thurston and discuss how the artist uses silhouettes to depict flowers and vines. In the art studio we will sketch from real flowers, then make our own cut paper silhouettes and mount them on colored paper.
