Laumeier Sculpture Park's Free Family Days provide families with a chance to bond while encouraging observation, imagination, curiosity and creativity. Visitors of all ages participate in structured activities for creating art using a variety of materials to create artwork based on personal experience.
Activities are designed to be simple enough for ages 4 and up to enjoy, yet complex enough that more experienced young artists can take their projects to another level. Families explore new media and concepts together and find inspiration in Laumeier's artworks and the natural environment.
2 to 4 p.m. Free for all ages and open to all. More information: laumeier.org
