MUSEUM MAKING CONNECTIONS
Saturday KidsArt is led by instructors Charity Baker and Kaitlin Donnally.
Saturday KidsArt is a spectacular and fun-filled two-hour program that provides an afternoon of exploration, enrichment and experimentation in the arts to children in grades K–5. The program is free thanks to generous sponsorship from Hoops Family Children’s Hospital, and no pre-registration is required. You can find several Saturday KidsArt videos on our website under the Education tab. Just select HMoA at Home and then look for the Saturday KidsArt links.
The children engage in art-making activities facilitated by Teaching Artists. This takes place in the Museum art studios. Parents and caregivers are invited to stay and participate alongside their children, and many have come to look forward to these afternoons of family fun.
Saturday KidsArt offers a variety of art activities. In all, this Saturday afternoon program provides a quality experience for everyone involved.
Parents and children alike love this program. Here is a comment the Museum has received:
This is a great program for the children/families in the community. It exposes young children to art and encourages them to be creative and get up off the couch. It also allows quality fun time for families to spend together, even for those on a limited income.
