Family Programs

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. 

Saturday,  November 4, 1 – 4 pm | Becoming You!
Enjoy a tour of portraiture in Becoming a Woman in the Age of the Enlightenment: French Art from The Horvitz Collection. Discover similarities and differences between today and 18th century France through themes of childhood, family life, work and fashion. Together, make a poster about growing up, expressing yourself and imagining the future. A variety of art materials and useful templates will be provided. This program is ideal for families with children ages 5+, but all ages are welcome.
