Family Sunday

Planting Seeds of Paradise

Sunday, April 14, 2024
1:00 PM–3:00 PM

Ages 3 and older with accompanying adults

 

Join us for Family Sundays at the Rubin! Bring your family to the Mandala Lab on the third floor for an afternoon of creativity and self-exploration that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy.

Each month we explore a new theme, with an art-making activity centered around that theme. A Museum educator does a brief demonstration of the project, teaches the art-making techniques, and lets you explore ways to make the project your own. 

Reservations are required for the 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM time slots. The program is free for your family, and each ticket comes with free access to the Museum galleries.

 

April Family Sundays

The painting, Sacred Realms and Heavenly Paradises, on view in the Museum’s Masterworks exhibition, depicts a future golden age of peace and harmony. Drawing inspiration from this artwork and in honor of Earth Day on April 22, we invite you to create your own vision of paradise on earth. Then plant a seed of positive change by making your own planter shaped like an animal from the Himalayas.
