Sunday September 18, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Don’t miss our monthly event just for families. Explore the Museum’s colorful exhibitions with an interactive treasure map, roll up your sleeves for a hands-on art project, learn more with a docent tour, take home prizes and have fun!
This September, Mingei is celebrating 100 years of Roald Dahl! Dahl is the beloved author of the BFG, MATILDA, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and many more!
Join us this Family Sunday when art and literature collide! Director and Teaching Artist Erin Pennell of Art FORM will lead participants through a Japanese lantern making project. Participants will create their own visual story with watercolor, drawing inspiration from Dahl’s stories.
At 2:30pm, enjoy the Japanese art of storytelling (Kamishibai) and join Write Out Loud SD for a storybox theater performance! Dahl’s THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE will be read.
