At the Swope Art Museum, the space formerly known as the Halcyon Gallery (the corner of 7th and Ohio) has been turned into a studio and community space!
One of the great features of this space is that it includes a preschool program (for ages 3-5) called Art Start. Art Start currently takes place on Tuesdays and is absolutely free. It used to be in the morning, but in January 2018 it moved to 1:00 p.m.
We went a few weeks ago; the kids listened to a story, did an art project, and then went on a scavenger hunt in the museum!
Art Start is my favorite place to be when my girls ask to make art, and I don’t feel like prepping or cleaning!
