Every First Sunday of the month from 2:00pm to 4:00 pm, from October to May, Danforth Art invites families to their Drop into Art events. During these programs families learn and play together at special programs. Begin your visit exploring works of art through hands-on activities with their Teen and Adult Docents in the Children’s Gallery and other exhibits. Next, visit the studios to create art of your own inspired by what you saw in the galleries. Different projects are offered each month in a variety of media, such as paint, charcoal, collage, and found objects.
This program is FREE for children and their accompanying adults. Please register in the lobby on the day of the program.
