Join us at the Oceanside Museum of Art for the Free Family Art Day: Creative and Musical Afternoon on June 9, 2013.

Learn the art of creating animals and block art using found objects at the next Free Family Art Day where families can create mixed media art inspired by two of OMA’s exhibits, "Volcanos and Full Moons: Ernest Silva" and "Intersections: Charles Arnoldi."

Explore the art of Ernest Silva by creating your favorite animal out of found objects, sticks and paper or enter the world of Charles Arnoldi by creating your own colorful block art using tape and paper.

Enjoy a performance by the North County Children’s Choir who will perform at 2 and 3 p.m. and a demonstration by marker artist Taylor deVille who will create designs on canvas shoes provided by Project Canvas with markers donated by BoardStix.

Kids will have the opportunity to explore a variety of different media and create their own three-dimensional form using wood, paper, Styrofoam, tin foil, wire, yarn and other found objects. 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 and kid-centric docent tours will be provided.

General admission is $8, $5 for seniors and free for students and military. Admission is free to the public the first Sunday of every month.
