Family Day: Quilting and Fort-Building

Families making art together at the Smart Museum

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, learn to crochet, make imaginative quilts, and create fantastic spaces for relaxation during a hands-on family day. The afternoon's activities are inspired by Faith Ringgold’s quilt and other works on display in the exhibition Down Time: On the Art of Retreat.

FREE. Art-making supplies and other materials 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.
