Drop Into Art

Second Sunday of Every Month



Drop Into Art offers a day of learning and discovery for children at the Danforth Art Museum every second Sunday of the month. Explore the galleries, be inspired by art, and get creative!  Each month introduces a new theme connecting art, stories, and hands-on fun. Families with children of all ages are welcome.

All sessions are held from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Admission is free.  No registration is required – just drop in!

February 13: Showing Love

This month our theme centers on showing love for friends and family. Come with your special someone(s) to enjoy the exhibitions in the Danforth Art Museum and be inspired by the giant playing card paintings by Jack Wolfe along with other works. Have fun making your own Valentine Cards using stamps and colored pencils, then take the elevator to the third floor and the Danforth Art School studios to play with printmaking and to make your own collograph card or picture.
