Celebrate Black History Month, Mardi Gras at AMSET’s Family Arts Day
(Beaumont, TX; January 23, 2020) The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) presents its winter Free Family Arts Day on Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Art activities are inspired by Black History Month and Mardi Gras as well as AMSET’s current exhibitions, EMILY PEACOCK: Pure Comedy and DAVID MCGEE: Black Paintings. At AMSET’s quarterly Family Arts Days, the hands-on art activities planned will 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 decorate Mardi Gras cookies and create Black & White Texture Paintings, Diversity Chains, Mardi Gras Throws, and Peacock Putty.
Complimentary cookies and punch will be provided as well as live entertainment. A concession stand serving ballpark-style food will be available, as well as free face painting.
Family Arts Days are always free and open to the public. Planned in conjunction with four major exhibitions each year, Family Arts Days combine creative exploration of the exhibit on display, plus hands-on art activities and storytelling for families. All activities are free, and all art materials are provided.
