Family First Workshops

Elementary school-aged children and an accompanying adult are invited to enjoy hands-on creative exploration during the Museum’s Family First workshops. Workshops are scheduled from 2-4 p.m. on the first Sunday of every month. Each month, the art projects will change to align with the Museum’s current collections and exhibitions.

If the Museum is open, we will include time for you to visit on your own; otherwise, we will provide a family pass for a later visit. To be added to the family programs email list and receive information about this and other programs, please email Julia Hood at julia@reynolda.org.

Spring 2024 Workshops

February 4: Valentine Card Workshop
Do you love making art? Combine your love for art with your love for friends and family as you create unique, handmade valentines to share. A select number of take-home valentine kits with all you need to make multiple collaged and stenciled cards can also be purchased in the Museum Store for kids or adults.


March 3: Felt Flower Pin Workshop
Get ready for spring by creating your very own felt flower to decorate a bag or wear as a pin. Choose from several different flower options during the workshop and take home patterns and instructions to make more at home. For the workshop, we’ll use a nice quality wool/rayon blend felt.

The workshop will involve some cutting, glueing, and hand stitching and is recommend for children 8-12 and an adult family member or friend.


April 14: Printing with Light – Tote Bag Workshop
Diverging from our normal workshop structure, participants can either register to each make their own cedar birdhouses from kit materials, or work together like the men in Jacob Lawrence’s Builders No. 2 to build one home for birds, then decorate the outside with paint. The cedar wood you’ll use to make a birdhouse once grew as a tree at Reynolda!


June 2: Miniature Food Workshop
Artist Grant Wood created models of his subjects before painting landscapes like Spring Turning (1936). In this workshop, we’ll learn some techniques for modeling with polymer clay, as well as ways to add some realistic coloring. Each participant can create a miniature fruit or vegetable basket with miniature food.
