February School Vacation Family Days

February School Vacation Family Days

"Sketchbook Studio"

Join Peaks Island illustrator Jamie Hogan for a day of activities inspired by sketchbooks and the exhibit Masterworks on Paper: Highlights from the Portland Museum of Art. Sketchbooks have long served artists as vessels of noticing, imagining, and sharing. Learn to make your own sketchbook and then bring it into the galleries to fill with drawings. Jamie will be on hand to share pages of her own sketchbooks and support you in starting your own.

Families will always find welcoming staff and worlds to explore at the Portland Museum of Art, but PMA Family Days are uniquely devoted to those with children. Do you still have tots in the stroller? Try our sensory art cards, which provide developmentally appropriate prompts for even the youngest visitors. You can also pick up one of our interactive (and silly!) gallery games or cozy up in an exhibition with a cushion and one of our storybooks. Come when you want, and stay as long as you want. Let’s have some fun. Children 14 and under are always free. Student admission is $10.

PMA Family Days run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
