    Noon – 3:00 p.m.

    Free and open to the public – all ages welcome

    Each month, join us at The Rockwell for FunDay Sunday – a series of completely free family activities designed to encourage creativity, self-expression, and an interest in art an early age. Visitors of all ages are invited to The Rockwell Museum for an afternoon of hands-on creativity.  No registration required. 

    This month, we celebrate the craft of canoe-making. Many Native American tribes made finely crafted canoes out of birch bark.  They peeled the bark off the trees in the spring to give the trees time to grow a new layer of bark before the next winter.  Design your own wood-grain pattern, then learn how to construct your very own paper model canoe.

    Drop in any time between noon and 3:00 p.m. to participate in this fun family art activity!
