Come celebrate spring at the Farnsworth Art Museum!
On Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to noon at the Gamble Education Center at the corner of Grace and Union Street in Rockland, families are invited to come participate in a special spring craft activity. Kids, create your own bouquet of paper daffodils and other colorful blooms. All materials will be supplied—colored papers, green straw stems, hole punches, scissors, glue, etc. Education staff will be available to assist. Munch some ants-on-a-log while listening to some snappy spring tunes. And have your face painted as either a flower, butterfly, or bee!
Kids ages 5 to 8 years old are invited to come hang out with art instructor Trelawney O’Brien and other creative kids this April break at the Farnsworth’s Gamble Education Center. Celebrate spring with seasonal crafts and spend some time outdoors as well.
