Family Programs

Family Day: Honey I Shrunk the Art  

Saturday, April 8, 1 – 4 pm 
Discover a miniature world of art on an itsy-bitsy tour of the Asian art exhibition Show Me the Mini. Together, make miniature paintings of a treasured place for a tiny person to enjoy. This program is ideal for families with children ages 5 – 11, but all ages are welcome. 

Family Days take place five times per year on select Saturdays and revolve around designated exhibitions and themes. These programs are ideal for families with children ages 5 to 11, but all ages are welcome. A Family Day includes a family-friendly tour of art in our galleries and a related art activity. The program is offered at no charge but a $2 donation per child is suggested.


352Creates: Color Your World

Friday, March 24, 11 am – 5 pm 
Pick up a coloring page based on a work of art in the Harn’s collection and get creative in celebration of the community-wide 352Creates project. Color in the museum, or take it to go. Share your creation online using #352creates.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time to register (we no longer take advance registration).
