All supplies and written instructions are included with access to online video tutorials. You don’t want to miss October’s Family Day at Home!
Colorful Corn Art
Colorful Flint corn compositions are sure to delight this autumn! Participants will use oil pastel and watercolor paint to create a colorful work of art.
Dia de los Muertos Dancing Calacas
Learn about the symbols and traditions of Dia de los Muertos (November 1st and 2nd). Participants will create an artwork featuring a dancing skeleton or Calacas and colorful flowers.
Fall Foliage Prints
Use leaves gathered from nature to create magical leaf prints. Participants will use found leaves and a simple printmaking technique to create prints of fall foliage.
*Family Day Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If we run out of kits, the FCM will post on all social media accounts. To check availability, call the museum at (843)676-1200 or check our social media accounts.
