CLARK ART INSTITUTE CELEBRATES YOUTH ART MONTH WITH AFTER-SCHOOL WORKSHOP

March 14, 2018
 
Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute invites children and their parents or caregivers to a workshop celebrating Youth Art Month on Wednesday, March 28 from 2–5 pm. Drop by after school, pick up a self-guide to look at artwork in the galleries that show acts of human kindness, and make a work of art that matters—a decoupage found-word poetry plaque, an inspiring yard sign, or a message in a bottle. Give your work of art to someone special to brighten his or her day, or leave it in an unexpected place in the community as a surprise act of good will.
 
Free admission is offered to one adult per participating child. Admission for children and Clark members is always free.
 
This program is supported by funding from the officers and employees of Allen & Company, Inc.
