Children and families are encouraged to explore the art and artists in the Bechtler collection through special art activities, family-focused museum tours and scavenger hunts during Family Day events held on various dates during the year.
Art activities (designed for children ages 5 and older) illustrate the methods and materials addressed by Bechtler collection artists such as Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Alexander Calder and others. The museum’s Family Day events are scheduled to coincide with the Charlotte Symphony's Lollipops concerts, which are held in the Knight Theater next door to the Bechtler prior to each Family Day.
Family Day events are held from noon to 4:30 p.m. and are designed for drop-in attendance. Admission is free for children and members/$4 for adults.
Hands-on projects will illustrate the methods and materials addressed by Bechtler collection artist Niki de Saint Phalle.
