Kids and families can explore the art and artists in the Bechtler collection through special hands-on art activities and family-focused museum tours during Family Day Saturday, February 10 from noon to 4:30 p.m. Drop in anytime during the afternoon. 

ACTIVITIES

Several hands-on art activities await art enthusiasts of all ages at Family Day. Think outside the box by creating Picasso portrait collages in the famous Spanish painter's cubist style in the Bechtler lobby. Continue one of the great art traditions of the season by creating your own Valentine's Day cards with a modern art flair in the second-floor classroom. Finally, draw your own sugar skulls in the fourth-floor family gallery inspired by the exhibition Maestros mexicanos de la fotografía moderna. Don't forget to see the new second-floor exhibition, Alfred Manessier.
