A variety of programs for families are offered throughout the year. 

 

 

Art All Around: Hunting for Shadows

September 7, 10 a.m. to noon, free admission from 9:30 a.m. to noon

Explore the elements of art and design by capturing the lines and shapes of shadows. Find existing shadows or even make your own. After creating a masterpiece, visit the galleries and see how many shadows you can find in the Museum’s collection.

This program is the first in the PNC Arts Alive First Sundays for families, free hands-on workshops to engage visitors of all ages in creative art activities.

 

Nature's Music

October 5, 10 a.m. to noon, free admission from 9:30 a.m. to noon

What do sounds look like? Artist Charles Burchfield's paintings show us the sounds and reverberations of nature, from insects to birds to a breeze. Discover the sounds that inspired Burchfield's "real and fantastic world" and express yourself through imaginative art projects set to music during this colorful workshop.

This program is part of the PNC Arts Alive First Sundays for families, free hands-on workshops to engage visitors of all ages in creative art activities.
