The Art Museum of Southeast Texas presents its Spring FREE Family Arts Day on Saturday, May 14, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. This event will be held outside in the museum parking lot, weather permitting. Follow the museum on social media for up-to-date information in the case of inclement weather.
Art activities are inspired by AMSET’s current exhibition, BILLY HASSELL: Topography. 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 Flutter Butterflies, Birdhouses and Bird Suncatchers as well as Paint by Number and design artwork using Nature Stamps. Complimentary cookies and punch will be provided. A concession stand serving ballpark-style food will be available.
This Family Arts Day will be in conjunction with the VIVA ARTACO Hispanic Heritage Festival at the Beaumont Civic Center presented by the Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau and Beaumont Events. Also joining in on the fun are the Texas Energy Museum and the Beaumont Children’s Museum.
All activities are free, and all art materials are provided. For more information, visit amset.org or call (409) 832-3432.
