The Timken Museum of Art is thrilled to bring back our creative and colorful highlight of the summer, The Creation Station. This season, we will feature two engaging activities at our interactive outdoor Creation Station in the Timken's plaza that is sure to be fun for Balboa Park visitors of all ages: Sidewalk Chalk Art and Family Mural Design.

During Family Mural Design weekends, you can explore your artistic side by painting a collaborative mural alongside a talented local artist. On Sidewalk Chalk Art weekends, you'll have the opportunity to see the Timken's masterpieces in a new way and up-close as San Diego's "Sidewalk-Chalk Dad", Erick Touissant, recreates the Timken Collection in chalk.

You'll also have the opportunity to make your mark and create your own chalk masterpieces. So come by and free your inner artist, with every weekend through the summer alternating with each activity. The Creation Station is free and for anyone looking to ignite their creative spark.

Creation Station will kick-off on Saturday, June 26 and will open on the following dates from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sidewalk Chalk Art: June 26 | July 10, 11, 24, 25 | Aug 7, 8, 21, 22
Family Mural Design: July 3, 4, 17, 18, 31 | Aug 1, 14, 15, 28, 29.
