Drop in, make, and take

Something you should know about (if you don't already) - drop-in art activities at the Walters Art Museum. Every Saturday and Sunday from 10am - 3pm join museum educators as they help families create artful projects related to the collection, special exhibitions, and family programs. There's no registration required and it's free - simply drop in, make, and take a fantastic piece of art home with you!

October's theme is picture puzzles and images of illusion found in the special exhibition Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic. Each weekend families will create their own mysterious mazes, picture games and tricky collages. So mark your calendars for the following:

10/2-10/3 – Mixed-up Mazes
10/9-10/10 –Two in One paintings
10/16-10/17 – Pop-up Pictures
10/23 – Free Family Festival of Wonders
10/24 – 3-D Illusions
10/30-10/31 – Tricks & Mirrors
