Join us this weekend for more fun-filled afternoons of art-making. Our focus piece can be found in Gallery 102. It looks like a big wrinkled cloth from far away, but as you get closer you might be surprised by the material! Take a good look, and then make your way outside to Mi Casa, Your Casa to make necklaces inspired by this piece.

Please tell me you have seen the awesome, interactive red houses of Mi Casa, Your Casa on our piazza. Need to put your feet up after walking the galleries?  Head outside to take it easy in one of our hammocks!  Hungry? We’ve got a Nathan’s Hotdog cart and ice cream in a nice shady corner. Need a creative idea to get your kiddos hands moving and minds working? Bring them every weekend for some fresh-air fun at our Family Art-making Workshops!

This weekend’s project:

The whole Woodruff Arts Center worked together for months to knit and crochet pieces for a “yarn bomb” of one of the red houses. It was installed this week!  Swing by with the whole family to make your own yarn-bombed bookmark to take home.

In case of rain, we will move inside to the Robinson Atrium and have just as much fun!

Hello High Museum of Art Families!

It’s official: the public programs department has officially entered the blogging world. I know what you’re thinking: it’s about time. We couldn’t agree more. This is going to be our platform to talk to all of you hip, art-loving families. But before I jump too far ahead, I want to introduce you to the public programs team.

Virginia Shearer, Associate Director of Education, is the brains behind all of the activities that your family enjoys here at the Museum. She has a myriad of programming expertise from several museums. And on top of all her museum experience, she has two kids of her own. What better way to understand what families want than to ask your own?

I’m Erin and I come to you from snowy Minneapolis. I’ve shed my winter coat and started to get the hang of saying “y’all” as much as possible. After interning and working at MASS MoCA, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and The Walker Art Center, I’m looking forward to spending time with you creating and exploring art.

We love art and making projects with families here in the public programs department. I hope that you are as excited about the future of High Museum family programming as we are. The possibilities of creative activities and performances here are endless. Please stay tuned to this new blog for weekly updates on upcoming family programs, DIY crafts, pictures, updates, and so much more.

Signing off for now,

Virginia and Erin
