Learning Goals

  • Flavor of the Day - Each week, there's a new art project to sink your...er...hands into! In keeping with the Museum theme, you won't want to miss this make and take project.
  • The Color Bar - Coloring is great for kids and grown-ups alike! Pull up a stool and fine tune those fine motor skills as you stay within the lines...or not.
  • Artist-in-Residence Gallery - Each month, we invite a new local artist to work "in studio" at the Art Cafe! Visit the Art Cafe to see a gallery of this artist's work, and stay tuned to the program calendar to find out when they'll be on site. Ask them questions and perhaps even work on a collaborative project together!
  • The Program Patio - Join one of the Museum's play-ologists for a special program that changes weekly! In keeping with the Museum theme, this program lasts 15-20 minutes and is designed for kids of all ages. Happening Tuesday-Saturday at 10:30a and 3:30p, Thursdays also at 5:30p and Sundays at 2:30p only.
