Families are invited to the Saint Louis Art Museum every Sunday afternoon for hands-on art activities and a lively, 30-minute family tour through the galleries. Each month there is a new family-friendly theme. You'll learn about art, the history of different cultures, music, some of the world's famous artists and composers, and will take part in interactive activities. Plus, see the new exhibit Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost Worlds!
In June: On the Move. How do artists use movement? Each Sunday in June, experience a new art activity that explores motion in a variety of ways. Discover ways to use movement from artworks that suggest motion, objects that actually move, and gestures artists make when creating art. Balance, flip, bend, and sway as you create dynamic originals of your own.
In July: Travel the World. Experience cultures from faraway places. Construct Italian-inspired architechture, craft a Peruvian-inspired textile, discover animals from the Americas, and create a scroll painting like those from China.
On July 15 from 1-3 p.m. see a special Family Weaving Demonstration. Experience traditional weaving techniques from a professional textile artist in celebration of the exhibition, Balance and Opposition in Ancient Peruvian Textiles.
On July 22 at 2 and 3 p.m., see special guests the Confluence Chamber Orchestra Family Concert and Instrument Petting Zoo! Engage with music from around the world and learn about instruments during a special family concert.
All activities are free. Please sign up on-site for the tour, which begins at 2:30 p.m.
Family Sundays are from 1-4 p.m. at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park and are appropriate for all ages.
