Celebrate Earth Day at the Harn Museum on April 20

GAINESVILLE, Fla.—Families will have the opportunity to admire the landscapes in Printmaking in the Age of Rembrandt and celebrate Earth Day at the Harn Museum of Art during Family Day on Saturday, April 20 from 1 to 4 p.m. In addition, the museum and Gainesville Garden Clubs is offering an adult foliage arrangement class in the morning from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For Family Day, participants will take a guided tour of Printmaking in the Age of Rembrandt. Following the tour, children will learn about the art of printmaking, a process by which an artist can create multiple copies of his or her work. Activities include creating drawings and prints of foliage arrangements that were created by adults in a morning class. A donation of $2 per child or $5 per family is requested if participating in the Family Day art-making activity. Admission to the Harn is free.

Adults may participate in “Learn to Make Arrangements from Foliage in your Yard,” a class offered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants will learn techniques and design their own foliage arrangement to take home. There is limited seating and registration is required. Class fee is $18 per person and includes a container and greenery. To register or for more information call 392-9826 x2112.
