Get creative making pop-up cards inspired by or for someone important in your life! Each kit will contain instructions and all the materials you need to create your own card. For ages 5 and up, young children will need some help from an adult. Quantities are limited, available in English and Spanish.

Art kits will be available for pickup in the Walker’s Main Lobby. Entry to the galleries is not required to pick up an art kit.

Stop by the Bentson Mediatheque to watch a short film! The film will loop throughout the day 10 am–3 pm. Capacity is limited to 10 people at a time. This is a relaxed screening appropriate for all ages.
