Family Days

Family Days take place five times a year and revolve around designated exhibitions and themes. These events are typically for ages 5 to 11 but all are welcome. A Family Day begins with a family-friendly tour of art in our galleries and then proceeds to our classroom space for an art activity relating to the tour.
