Art Lab Themes
Instruments of Our Own
For thousands of years humans have been making and playing musical instruments, constantly inventing new instruments and modifying existing ones to produce different sounds and mimic the sounds we hear from animals. In the galleries you’ll listen to the story of a small but courageous jungle hero and join in a scavenger hunt for real and imaginary creatures from around the world. Journey back to the art studio to make and play your own musical instruments during this music-themed art lab. Together we will build on the human tradition of instrument making.
Squish, squeeze, and mold during our Super Sculptors Birthday Art Lab。 Search the galleries to find fascinating Himalayan sculptures and learn how they were made。 Then, let your imagination run wild as you make your own imaginary creatures out of clay。 Use sequins, gemstones, and glitter to make your sculpture shimmer。
Blast off into outer space with our newest birthday party theme Spectacular Starscapes. Craft futuristic Galaxy Jars filled with watercolors, inks, and eco-friendly glitter, constructing your own New York City nebula. Explore artworks in the gallery that manipulate space and concepts of time before returning to the art studio to create. Galaxy Jars aim to introduce children to the abstract concepts of time and space through a fun art-making activity. Creating a miniature world inside a bottle provides inspiration and encourages children to be curious of the cosmos.
