March to the Mississippi Museum of Art and Create Some Fun!
The Hoot and Holler Family Creation Lab takes place on Sunday, March 12 from 2:00-3:30 PM. Each second Sunday, families with children ages 6-10 are led by a Museum educator in an art project inspired by a different artist each month. Families are guided in conversations around works by the selected artist followed by related studio projects in the classroom. Families will not only leave with an art work, but will learn techniques they can repeat and expand on at home. Cost: $10 per child. Visit www.msmuseumart.org to register.
The whole family will enjoy Museum After Hours on Thursday, March 16th at 5:30 PM. Every third Thursday the Museum hosts a time when they open the doors after hours to partner with and embrace Mississippi’s creative community. These family-friendly events feature one-night pop up exhibitions, pop up dining experiences, and combinations of live music, outdoor movies, games, and more. Each month has a new theme and a new story. The Museum Store and exhibition galleries remain open until 8 PM for shopping and exploring. Sponsored by Hertz Investment Group and Capital City Beverages. Cost: Free to the public.
Finally, young kids will love to Look and Learn with Hoot on Friday, March 17th from 10:30 AM- noon. This educational opportunity for children up to five years of age with their parents emphasizes creative play and literacy through a hands-on art activity and story time. (Hoot, a friendly owl, is the Museum’s education mascot.) Please dress for mess! Sponsored by Children’s Medical Group, P.A. Cost: Free to the public.
