Join us Saturday, February 4, at 2 pm, for Family Saturday: Stained Glass Snowflakes! After viewing photographs of snowflakes from the Tang collection by Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley, the first person to make detailed photographs of individual snowflakes, participants will create snowflakes using glitter-glue and other materials.

Family Saturday programs foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art-making activity. Programs run from 2-3:30 pm and include a tour of selected works. All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children age 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. No registration required; supplies provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Family Saturdays continue February 18; March 4; April 1, 15, 29; and May 13.
