Get Creative at the National Gallery of Art’s First Saturday of September!

 

With a long weekend ahead, there’s even more time to enjoy some fun with the family.  And one great way to spend some of that time is at the National Gallery of Art ‘s monthly First Saturday! The special day-long affair offers multiple free programs for kids of all ages.

On Saturday, September 2, the fun begins with a story time session for little ones.  Hear a reading of the children’s book Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Eric Carle in English and Spanish and stay for a little play time, too.

Then starting at 11am, all ages can enjoy even more: Create sculptures using Model Magic clay, try out the new Sketching Lab, and visit the museum’s pop-up library, where you can browse special selections from the Library collection and enjoy quiet activities for kids.

These free activities are offered throughout the East Building and don’t require registration. View more details and the full schedule of the day’s activities here.

Of course, plan for time to tour the exhibits, too!
