Create at Home: Storytime with Abby

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.

Calling our littlest artists! Dive into an imaginary world with Beyond the Pond by Joseph Kuefler, then make a magical underwater painting inspired by the story. All you’ll need this week is some basic supplies and a big imagination!

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, July 31 on our Facebook and Instagram for a full video featuring storytime, as well as this week's art making activity. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
