Saturday KidsArt is a spectacular and fun-filled two-hour program that provides an afternoon of exploration, enrichment and experimentation in the arts to children in grades K–5. The program is free thanks to generous sponsorship from Hoops Family Children's Hospital, and no pre-registration is required. Currently, a Saturday KidsArt activity video is being presented online on HMA's Facebook page each Saturday at 1 p.m.
The children engage in art-making activities facilitated by Teaching Artists. This takes place in the Museum art studios. Parents and caregivers are invited to stay and participate alongside their children, and many have come to look forward to these afternoons of family fun.
Saturday KidsArt offers a variety of art activities. In all, this Saturday afternoon program provides a quality experience for everyone involved.
Parents and children alike love this program. Here is a comment the Museum has received:
This is a great program for the children/families in the community. It exposes young children to art and encourages them to be creative and get up off the couch. It also allows quality fun time for families to spend together, even for those on a limited income.
