Family Day: Super Stars and Majestic Moons

Join the Smart Museum of Art on a space mission!

During this monthly Family Day, become an “astro-artist” and create glow-in-the-dark starscapes for your bedroom, make shimmering moon posters that can change phases, and even play with a moon balloon. The afternoon art activities are inspired by artist Ruth Duckworth’s love of the natural world and an anecdote that she once climbed to the roof of her studio and sang a song to the full moon. 

FREE, drop-in. 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.


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.
