Art is a great way for children to understand the world around them, and express that understanding. It allows them to shape their imaginations into a created form. The Walters Art Museum offers families with children the opportunity to discover the art world through hands-on programs such as Drop-In Art Activities.
In the News
On Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Walters Art Museum offers Drop-In Art Activities, a program suitable for families and children. This program is free and pre-registration is not required. The current monthly theme is Drop-In Art Activities: In the News.
Inspired by Baltimore artist, Richard Caton Woodville (1825-1855), children will learn how to express themselves by creating art with new techniques. They will, “write, wear and build newsworthy objects and inventions from the 19th Century.”
Also in March, check out the new exhibition, New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville. The exhibition will run from Sunday, March 10 through Sunday, June 12. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, and until 9 p.m. Thursdays.
