Yesterday, I had the most interesting conversation with the one-man marketing wizardess of the Laguna Art Museum, Marni Farmer.
We got together to discuss her upcoming year’s events and it started with three or four events, and then she remembered another three or four events, and then she remembered another 12 or 16. Granted this tiny team of devoted art lovers who work at the Museum has committees who help them with their various events, but it was still unbelievable to me that the Laguna Art Museum does all that it does in a year’s short time.
This Sunday (Jan 19th), the Laguna Art Museum is introducing a new fun activity for kids – “Kids’ Art Studio” from 2 – 4 p.m. This event will now occur every third Sunday of the month, and is strictly for kids who want to get their hands into art.
This drop-in session allows kids to make art right there in the Laguna Art Museum lobby based on inspiration from one of the exhibitions in the Museum at that time. For instance, this coming Sunday, kids will be creating their own clay pots in mode and style inspired by Adam Silverman’s work currently on display. Each month, the Museum will provide new instructors with new, fun art activities.
It’s an easy way to get your child involved (literally) in art as you take your own time to explore the Laguna Art Museum. Even better, it’s free for kids 12 and under. Adults who are members of the Museum are also free, and non-member adults pay $7, while seniors and students are $5.
