Just like in ancient myth and contemporary culture, Wren Ross’ artworks use symbols and colors to communicate. Although her style is abstract, it is full of intention and meaning. Join KUED Kids at UMOCA to create your own abstract artwork. We will use curriculum from a brand new PBS Kids program, Pinkalicious & Peterrific, to inspire our abstract painting, using experimental tools like straws and feathers. After learning about how abstract artists like Wren Ross make decisions as they create, we will discover the hidden meaning within our own paintings.
UMOCA invites children of all ages and their families to discover our changing exhibitions and participate together in hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator. Each activity connects to a brand new idea, medium or theme explored by an artist currently exhibited in the museum. Projects are suitable from toddler to tween in a wide range of abilities.
Family Art Saturday is offered free of charge.
Family Art Saturday is held the second Saturday of each month from 2 to 4 pm
Museum admission is a $5 suggested donation to help support our programming.
