Family First Workshops

Elementary school-aged children and their favorite adult visit the Museum and make art together during Family First Workshops. Participants tour the Museum with a Reynolda House education specialist to view selected artworks or objects in the historic house and galleries, which then inspire a special art activity in the studio. Workshops are scheduled on the first Sunday of every month from 2-4 p.m. Art projects vary each month to connect to different inspirations in the collection and changing exhibitions.

Upcoming workshops:

February 4 — Valentines Workshop
In this classic February workshop, participants can choose several different art projects to make Valentine cards and room decorations. Express your love with original art! Register for February 4.

CANCELED  March 4 — Design Your Home
