Children Embrace Creativity and Recycling at AMSET’s Family Arts Day
(Beaumont, TX; July 22, 2022) As back-to-school quickly approaches, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) invites children and their families to join in AMSET’s summer Free Family Arts Day on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public with all art materials provided.
Children and their families are encouraged to explore the museum and to “Don’t Mess with Texas, Mess with Art” by creating artwork with recycled materials. Art activities are inspired by AMSET’s current exhibition, KELIY ANDERSON-STALEY: Documents & Dwellings on view until September 18. The exhibition demonstrates Anderson-Staley’s unique and personal investigation into the definition of home, family, and community. At AMSET’s quarterly Family Arts Days, the hands-on art activities help children and their families explore the artwork on display and use their creativity to make artwork in the same styles as those artists.
Children can create Sun Prints, Recycled Collages and Accordion-style Books as well as Draw with Light, Scratch Art, and enjoy a Portrait Station! Complimentary cookies and punch will be provided. A concession stand serving ballpark-style food will be available. Throughout the day, AMSET will draw winners for backpacks full of school supplies for the new school year.
This Family Arts Day will also include two live demonstrations from Gator Country at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. For more information, follow AMSET on social media, visit amset.org or call (409) 832-3432.
