About the Program

Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!

April 9–May 1: Rediscovered Animals—Get inspired by the Skirball Puppet Festival and the diverse community of whimsical creatures that inhabit Noah’s Ark! Construct your own animal using an array of repurposed materials, then share its special story.

May 7–29: Journey Maps—Using an assortment of recycled materials, create a 3D map of your favorite journey, whether it was to the neighborhood park or to a place far away—oh, the places you’ve been!

June 4–26: Chasing Dreams Kites—Inspired by the stories of courage and resilience told in the exhibition Chasing Dreams, create a kite and decorate it with your own hopes and dreams to fly wherever the wind takes you this summer.
