‘Works of Art’ inspires hands-on exploration for kids at Midland museum

Museum of the Southwest inspires kids to explore ‘Works of Art’

The Fredda Turner Durham Children’s Museum at the Museum of the Southwest in Midland is offering a new array of “Works of Art” classes for kids and tweens aged 4-12 years old. The classes are available free of charge with admission to the museum.

The coolest part? The classes’ projects employ artistic techniques relating to current exhibitions at the museum. Classes are open to the first 12 children who check-in.

Throughout January, the Works of Art classes include “Wondrous Windows” on Jan. 11 from 11-11:30 a.m. and 4-4:30 p.m., where kids create a wondrous winter wonderland; “Mug Magic” on Jan. 16 and Jan. 18 from 11-11:30 and 4-4:30 p.m. during which kids can create a mug using water-based paints; “Warm Weavings” Jan. 23 and Jan. 25 from 11-11:30 a.m. and 4-4:30 p.m. at which kids create wearable art; and “Teen Art” on Jan. 31 from 3-4:30 p.m. where participants will explore basketry.
