All Inventors are Welcome! Spark!Lab, Kinetic Art and Other Summer Programming at the Morris Museum
Weekdays in July and August, 3:00 – 4:30 pm
For ages 5-7
Do you have an adventurous artist at home? At the
end of a beautiful summer day, put all your kid's energy and
creativity into art! Join us for our new program called Artful
Afternoons, where each week is inspired by a Museum exhibition.
These dynamic and unique classes will be offered for four weeks
this summer. Due to the variety of media and projects offered
returning students are welcome!
This June, gear up for Kinetic Kids! An art class
where art, sound, motion, science, and engineering connect! Over
the course of 4 weeks, students will create kinetic art and automata
with inspiration from Morris Museum’s own juried exhibition, Timeless
Movements: A Cache of Kinetic Art.
Are you fascinated by Rube Goldberg Machines? Do you
have a young inventor who wants the challenge of building their
own? Check out the Spark!Lab and our newest activity station:
Contraptions in Action.
Created by two all star Ambassadors, Doug Holcomb
and Jack Rosenfarb, this is a newly designed activity created
specifically for the Morris Museum's Spark!Lab. Even the staff
cannot help themselves from inventing. Thank you Spark!Lab
ambassadors and happy teachers appreciate week!
Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by
leadership support from BASF Science Education in North America.
Generous support is also made possible by Gay H. Osborn on behalf
of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.
