Family Arts Day
The Humboldt Arts Council is hosting Second Saturday Family Arts Day at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Families are invited to participate together in this free monthly art-making workshop that complements the museum’s current exhibitions. These workshops are aimed at intergenerational learning and creation in a museum environment.
This Saturday’s workshop will focus on creating monochromatic graphite and ink drawings inspired by Kay Hardin’s exhibition, ‘Shade’. Participants will tour the exhibition and be inspired for the day’s project. After the visit, everyone will go to the Youth Room to create with the help and guidance of Genevieve Kjesbu, art educator. All material will be provided.
The Morris Graves Museum of Art is located at 636 F St., Eureka.
