Family Day: Tees 'n' Totes

Family Days at the Smart Museum are designed to celebrate the creative potential in all of us. With new projects every month, Family Days offer opportunities for kids and their caregivers to create together and connect with one another. Each program is unique, fun, and free, emphasizing invention, improvisation, and hands-on creativity.

This Saturday, make a radical abstract spray-painted cotton tote to take home and learn how to silkscreen your own Smart summer t-shirt. The activities are inspired by works in the Smart's collection. 

FREE and open to all, with a special welcome to all those in town for UChicago Alumni Weekend.

Tees, totes, and art-making supplies are provided. Family programs are best for kids 4–12, but all ages are welcomed! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
