Design sculptures out of found objects such as wood, plastic, metal, beads, fabric and other fun materials. Children learn how to transform everyday objects into art by hot gluing them together to modify their meaning or significance.

This recycled art project is inspired by our exhibition "Looking for a Miracle?" Italo Scanga that features mixed media sculptures made of everyday objects. This art day takes place on August 7th, 2011 at 1p.m.

At Free Family Art Day, children and their parents work closely in the artistic process designing small works of art that reflect concepts and themes from the exhibitions on view. All art activities and exhibitions on view are free to the public. Projects are designed to engage children of all ages.

*No art experience is required for the art activities. Healthy refreshments are provided. Kid-friendly docent tours will be available.

Free Family Art Day is made possible by Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego and The James Irvine Foundation. For information about the museum or to volunteer at Free Family Art Day, call 760.435.3720 or visit
