Get hands-on with some upcoming activities

Now that we’re getting back into our routines after the holiday season, it’s a perfect opportunity to take in one (or two, or more) of our upcoming activities and get inspired to build more creativity into your day-to-day life. Here’s a look at what we have coming up.

For the kiddos

Kid Quest, our popular art-making event for the whole family, continues into the new year and continues to inspire the next generation of artists. To register for a free Kid Quest event, call 701.232.3821 ext. 101, or click here to register online. Upcoming dates are:

  • February 4 – Furious Felters. Get your hands into fabric and felting, just like the artists in this year’s Unglued Craft Fest to be held Saturday, February 25 at the Museum.
  • March 10 – The Great Art Free for All. We give you the supplies, you take them into bold new directions.
  • April 7 – Don’t Throw That Away. Celebrate Earth Day by re-purposing your rubbish into fun creations.

Kid Quest is sponsored by Xcel Energy Foundation, Village Family Magazine, and Minnesota Public Radio.
