TMA Introduces Saturday Family Art Club
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) is launching a new, free art-making program for children and their grownups, called Family Art Club, on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Designed as a way for children 10 years old and younger and their grownups to explore art together, these 45-minute workshop sessions include all the supplies needed to create a unique work of art inspired by the art and artists in TMA’s collections and special exhibitions.
While the museum is excited to welcome the public to Family Art Club, visitors’ next experience at TMA will look different. Important instructions before arrival:
Family Art Club is free, but to keep a safe capacity, advance registration is required at tickets.toledomuseum.org or (419) 255-8000, ext. 7448.
All staff and Family Art Club participants will complete a health screening upon entering, which includes completing a questionnaire and a temperature screen.
The program will be held in the Toledo Museum of Art Family Center and Classrooms, 2445 Monroe St., Toledo.
Planetarium Presents Dome From Home Club
The Lourdes University Appold Planetarium presents the Dome From Home Club. Members will experience a new show every week right from home. Nothing can really compare with the immersive experience of traveling through space in the Appold Planetarium, but watching a version formatted for your flat screen at home is the next best thing.
“The Dome From Home Club is a new STEM education offering made available free to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to continue to educate and encourage curiosity, despite the restrictions created by this pandemic,” explained Laura Megeath, coordinator of the Appold Planetarium.
The club is free. For more information or to sign up, visit www.lourdes.edu/outreach/appold-planetarium.
