Make & Take

To adhere to social distancing guidelines we are not currently offering in-person Make & Take. As gathering and social distancing guidelines ease, we will begin to reimplement programs; please check back regularly for updated information. 

Just because we can't see you in person doesn't mean we can't make art together! This spring, we will hand out art kits at the Museum that you can take with you and complete in the comfort of your home. Each kit is free and will include supplies and instructions.
