Join the Vernon Public Art Gallery on the last Friday of every month for a diverse exploration of art-making materials and art processes through age-appropriate art activities. They invite parents and guardians to bring their little ones under the age of 5 to explore art-making with non-toxic materials in this fun and social program that encourages creative self-expression while developing fine and gross motor skills and sensory awareness. Make sure you dress for the mess as all are invited to join in on the fun!
Parents must accompany children for the duration of the session and admission is by donation.
