Family Day: Art Rocks!

CANCELLED

Out of an abundance of caution and in support of evolving public health measures related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Smart Museum of Art has temporarily closed and all on site public programs have been suspended until further notice. Read our latest update »


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.

Rock out your Saturday by constructing cool shiny rocks out of aluminum sheets! Work together to build a cave out of cardboard boulders, decorate real rocks, and get creative drawing on rock walls with water. The activities are inspired by the work of Song Dong and Zhan Wang on view in The Allure of Matter

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.
