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 November and December are presented from 11 am–1 pm Tuesdays, November 10 and 24, and December 8 and 22. Activities are free with gallery admission; Walker members and children ages 12 and under always receive free admission.
During the November and December programs, visitors can relax and reflect on light, space, and contemporary art at in-gallery yoga sessions with instructor Jessica Rosenberg that take place in the exhibition Robert Irwin: Slant/Light/Volume, featuring the artist’s ethereal translucent scrim piece. Art-making, stories, films, and other activities throughout the Walker will further stretch your imagination.
