Parents and caregivers with youngsters ages 3–5 have a fun way to find artistic inspiration with Arty Pants: Your Tuesday Playdate, the popular Walker Art Center program designed to nurture creativity and engage a child’s mind. Arty Pants programs, presented on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, feature art projects, films, gallery activities, and story readings. Meet other families for a treat at the Gallery 8 Café. The Arty Pants programs in July and August, which focus on products designed to help solve everyday problems in the developing world, are presented from 11 am–1 pm Tuesdays, July 8 and 22, and August 12 and 26. Activities are free with gallery admission; Walker members and children ages 12 and under always receive free admission.
In July and August, globe-trot with your youngster through film, art-making, stories, and tours. Inspired by the exhibition Design for the Other 90%, families gather with guest artists to explore designs that are making a difference around the world. Bring a friend and join other families in the fun!
