Walter’s Art Gallery Visit

One Sunday afternoon, we decided it was time for D (age 4) to experience his first trip to the art gallery for an art activity.  We hopped in the car and headed to the BMA.

Unfortunately, after finding parking and getting all the kids into the museum, I realized that I had read the schedule wrong and we arrived on the day of the family tour.

I knew that was not going to be a good choice for my four year old and his first experience at the museum, so we headed back to the car.  I grabbed directions from the front desk on our way out so we headed to the OTHER art gallery downtown, The Walter’s Art Gallery.

Thankfully we made it with 45 minutes to spare in order to do the family fun activity of creating your own animal mask.

I love the variety of materials that the kids are given to use.

They also created matching tails.  T had a great time with her tail!

The Walter’s Art Gallery has a wonderful play area outside of the family art/craft room.  There were puppets, costumes, and books available.  We had a great time playing different characters.

It was a great day and all THREE of the “olders” had a great time.  It was such fun to see D join in on the “older” outings now!
