GRAB-N-GO EARTH DAY ART KITS
From Tuesday through Sunday, stop by the Museum to pick up your free Earth Day Family Art Kits. Art teachers often have extra materials left over from special projects. Rather than letting these materials go to waste, the Museum will package them up into grab-n-go boxes. Each kit will include random art supplies and suggestions for how to use them to make art. No need to register!
Looking for other Earth Day activities? Let’s turn Earth Day into Earth Month!
April 22 is Earth Day, and the Museum is offering many ways to focus on caring for our planet.
• During the entire month of April, please bring your used water-based markers to the Museum and leave them in a special box at the front desk. At the end of the month, the Museum will box them up and ship them to Crayola for recycling.
• On Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, the Museum will re-release its popular Junk Mail Fish video, which explains how to use unwanted mail to make a colorful fish. Over 1000 children have participated in the Museum’s Junk Mail Fish program and it has been featured at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE), Arts and Activities Magazine and the National Art Education Association (NAEA).
