Summer Family Programs: Lend a Hand with Alex George


June 23, 2022 10:30am - 11:30am

Create a collaborative art piece to support mental health and wellness.

Event Details

Get creative at the Bullock this summer with special classes led by local artists. Explore with art materials and media to help you process feelings and strengthen your mental health.

Create your unique handprint using linocut printing for a collaborative art piece that emphasizes lending support to others facing mental health issues. Write a piece of advice to pair with your handprint that voices ideas about how to nurture mental health in a long-term, sustainable way. Intended for children ages 8-12 years old. Visit the exhibition Mental Health: Mind Matters to understand how mental illness affects those living with it.

Each day's unique activity will last 1 hour. Activities are designed for specific age ranges noted in each class description. Tickets are $12/child or $6/member child. Caregivers are invited to create alongside their children. Exhibition admission is included for each registered child. Caregivers must purchase exhibition admission if they plan to visit exhibitions.

Online ticket sales will close 1 hour before the event. Onsite ticket sales will be available at the Museum up to the time of the class if there is still capacity.
