Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.
Forget crayons and pencils—we’ll show you how to create a brand new drawing or painting tool for your art making needs! Gather up some wacky items and see how you can design a brand new way to make a mark.
Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, May 15 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your artistic creation. You can also visit thecontemporaryaustin.org/digital/create for more information and past projects!
In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
