Kid Quest: Hurray! It’s Clay

February 01, 2020, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Hunt for texture and color in the galleries. Carry your inspiration to the studio and get your hands on some clay with a simple slab bowl project. Then bring a piece of fabric to weave into a collaborative installation led by artist Olivia Bain in the Creativity Gallery.

Kid Quest is a FREE drop-in 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.
