PersianRug-708×448 (1)

After a nearly two-year hiatus, the Detroit Institute of Arts is bringing back its popular FREE family art making programs beginning January 14th.

 

Rich in history and culture and FREE to tri-county residents – the Detroit Institute of Arts is the perfect place to spend time with kids. Explore the galleries, find inspiration AND create your own art. Drawing in the Galleries and Drop-In Workshops will be offered two weekend a month with rotating themes and all materials supplied. 

 

Drawing in the Galleries returns to Friday nights from 6pm to 8:30pm in various locations throughout the museum. During this program, artists and instructors from the DIA’s Studio Department will be on hand to help visitors create unique pencil drawings to take home while taking a closer look at the collection. No experience is necessary, and all materials are provided.

Drop-in Workshops will be held on Saturdays from 10am to 5pm in the art-making studio. These fun and accessible art-making experiences are for all ages.

Capacity is limited and proof of vaccination is required.
