Explore, learn, and create with Mississippi Museum of Art as they celebrate the closing of the 2021 Mississippi Invitational with art activities for the entire family! In this special, COVID-conscious Family Day, MMA will share 100 FREE art kits that encourage hands-on learning and creativity to take home for a fun-filled day.
Each Family Day art kit will introduce families to art and artists on view in the 2021 Mississippi Invitational, complete with full activity supplies and step-by-step instructions. MMA will hand out kits starting at 9:30 AM until 12:30 PM (or until out), so please arrive early to stop by and take one home for art fun with the family. Family Day art kits are curated for a variety of ages, and MMA encourages adult participation and supervision with activities. Admission to the 2021 Mississippi Invitational will be free on Fall Family Day.
What can you do with your art kit? Here’s a few of MMA’s prepared activities:
– Create your own unique cyanotype, or sun print, inspired by artists Gregory Walker and Pat Galluzzo.
– Take a closer look at Tributary 2 by Nicole Dikon and collage your own unique piece inspired by leaves, trees, flowers, or anything you can easily spot in nature.
– Turn the page on your very own Zine, just like Nathan Pietrykowski’s Wandering Party (Zine).
MMA looks forward to seeing what you create! When you are happy with your piece, sign it and share a picture with them! Tag @msmuseumart or #MMAfromHome on Instagram or share with the Mississippi Museum of Art’s Facebook.
