ArtStarts Explores

Launching this July, ArtStarts Explores is a hands-on drop-in workshop series for creative and adventurous families held from 11am to 12pm every Saturday (except the last Saturday of each month, when we present ArtStarts on Saturdays events). Explore creativity with your family through hands-on investigations and discover a wide variety of materials and artistic mediums. These process-based explorations invite families to experiment together through observing, touching, drawing, moving, assembling and listening to ignite their creative learning. Ages 12 and under. Free! Donations welcome.

While at the ArtStarts Gallery, check out our exhibition of young people's art, Cause and Effect: Young People's Perspectives on Past, Present and Future. From engineering contraptions that produce a chain reaction to sound mapping, this exhibition features creative projects by 1,717 students who made insightful reflections about place, memory and myth, interpreting narratives from the past and present—and making their own for the future.
