During the April school vacation week, MASS MoCAs Education Department will offer a Spring Break Art Detox, a series of three workshops for children ages 5 to 12 (parents are welcome to accompany them).  Workshops will run from 9-11am, and each session will offer two art projects and healthy snacks.  The workshops will focus on themes of recycling and respecting nature, in

celebration of Earth Day on Monday, April 22nd. Participants can sign up for one, two, or all three sessions; children can be dropped off, or you can work on projects together as a family.

Wednesday, April 17: We’ll kick off the week by creating your very own terrariums, which will bring some green in to your household. Along with the terrariums we will get our hands dirty by making some earth friendly non-edible dirt cupcakes.

Thursday, April 18: Give back to nature! Create your own unique birdhouse and make seed bookmarks that can be planted.

Friday, April 19: Take a step in the right direction! Create a personalized stepping-stone to put in the yard and make a magical bubble wand that you dance around with in the sunshine.

Children will help prepare a healthy snack every day. *Please alert the education department in advance if your child has any food allergies.

The cost is $10 per child per session. Members of MASS MoCA will receive a discount with the fee at $7 per child per session. Adults may accompany free of charge. Pre-registration is required. There are only 15 spaces for each of the Spring Break Art Detox sessions, don’t miss out; reserve today! To register or for more information, please call the Box Office.
