PMA Family Days: "Storms, Rocks, and Waves"

PMA Family Days: "Storms, Rocks, and Waves"

The Homer High School Fellows will lead a day of Winslow Homer-inspired activities, art projects, and gallery talks. Gain inspiration through close observation of Homer’s paintings and etchings and then create works of art inspired by the sea. Over the summer of 2016, the Fellows were hired to create new opportunities for youth engagement while learning about Homer’s life and work.

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 young children. Come when you want, and stay as long as you want. Let’s have some fun. All activities are free with museum admission. Children under 14 are always free. Students receive the discounted price of $10. 

PMA Family Days run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
