Come one, come all…the Academy Art Museum welcomes children ages 6+ and their families to explore and create art on select Saturdays. According to the Child Development Institute, “Families can create a harmonious balance in their children’s lives when they make provisions for the arts.” The site goes on to offer lots of ways that parents can incorporate art in their families’ lives and closes by advising, “the most important ingredient in the recipe is your interest. Be there to appreciate and encourage during every step of the creative process.” What better way to spend quality time with your child than to come to the Museum and work together on a project? The family that makes art together gets smART together!
