Museums are often places where communities and families bond through meaningful experiences. On Saturday, August 4th from 1 - 2:30pm, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum will host a special program for Museum family members with children called Summer Family Studio.
The program will begin with an interactive and family-friendly tour of the MMAMís Impressionist paintings. After having a chance to discuss and observe the techniques of the Impressionists, the group will move into the Museumís education room and experiment with acrylic paint and canvas to create their own Impressionistic work of art. Summer Family Studio is appropriate for all ages and families will work together to create their painting.
About this opportunity, MMAM Curator of Education Heather Casper states, ďI love working with all of the amazing families that come to the Museum, and this is a special opportunity to thank those who help support the Museum. Itís a fun afternoon of exploring, laughing, and art-making.Ē
