THE GLAB FAMILY ART STUDIO
Located in a former multi-use classroom on the Museum’s lower level, the Glab Family Art Studio has been re-imagined as a center for hands on learning and play through the visual arts.
New art-making stations and activities are designed to capture our youngest visitors’ imaginations and to satisfy their desire to touch, feel, and explore. DuMA’s newly remodeled Glab Family Art Studio includes a variety of creative art activities and stations designed to fit your busy schedule. Explore a variety of creative approaches and do-it-yourself art activities, perfect for children ages 3-10 and their parents, grandparents or caregivers to explore together.
The studio is open for use during regular museum hours, except for during posted classes
(Dates available on our Event Calendar)
Regular Museum admission is not required to use the family art studio. Admission to the Glab Family Art Studio is always FREE.
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult while using the space.
