Wild Art & Maker Event

Saturday, June 26  |  10 am – 2 pm


Paint BIG, create a sound sculpture, smash and mix your own chalk paint, reverse graffiti with mud, and more! Families become artists when they explore unique and unusual art forms at DCM’s Wild Art & Maker event. Activities feature new, unfamiliar ways for families to get messy, interact with and create art, and be a maker. Participants have the opportunity to work alongside local or regional artists that practice a unique art form.
