    Add to Calendar 02/15/2016 10:00 AM 02/15/2016 1:00 PM America/New_York School’s Out! Short Films and Beading

    Monday, February 15 | 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.beads

    Free and open to the public – all ages welcome.

    Make time for meaningful family fun on your day off from school, filling your day off with art, culture and family memories! Drop in with the family any time of day (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) to explore the galleries with an Art Hunt and get creative in our Family Exploration Studio.

    This month, we celebrate the traditional craft of beading – you’ll learn to create colorful geometric patterns using beads and string. Native Americans are recognized for their extraordinary beadwork incorporated into their clothing, accessories and jewelry.  Early beadwork used beads crafted out of wood, bone, shells, porcupine quills and semi-precious stones like turquoise. Glass beads were later introduced by the Europeans. 

    Needs some quiet time? We’ll also be featuring short mythical Native American tales about traditional legends on the big screen. Cozy up with popcorn for a fun family afternoon out. 

    Drop in any time between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to participate in this fun family art activity!
