#SSfrom Home – Glass

September 12, 2020

Enjoy #SSfromHome themed family art activities at home. Very similar to our physical Super Saturdays, you can expect a theme related to our collection or an exhibition, a tour component, a suggested film list that goes along with the theme, and an easy craft to make at home. We are happy to provide creative and art filled experiences for your family, and look forward to seeing you at the MMA soon!

Today, we will explore Glass art.
