Kid Quest: Hurray! It’s Clay!

February 04, 2023, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Join us for one of our favorite days of the year, Hurray! It’s Clay! We will visit multiple clay artworks, looking for color, texture, and shape before heading over to the studio to create. In the studio, we will use a clay slab to create a fish bowl wall hanging.

Kid Quest is a FREE program designed for the whole family to explore and create at your own pace. Each month has a unique theme with new artwork to explore and art projects to create.

Kid Quest is made possible with funding from Xcel Energy with additional support from Minnesota Public Radio.

Recent Works by John Nellermoe
