First Sunday Drop Into Art
Danforth Art invites families to learn and play together at special programs and free days. Begin your visit exploring works of art through hands-on activities with our 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.
FREE for children and their accompanying adults. Please register in the lobby on the day of the program.
