Van Gogh to Playdough August: Feelings

Thursday, August 01
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
BYU Museum of Art

This Month's Project:

Join us this August as we learn about the relationship between color and emotions! In the exhibition Reconciliation, we will highlight a work inspired by “Ode to Joy.” In the studio, we’ll create our own art inspired by color and emotions!

About Van Gogh to Playdough:

This popular activity, specially designed for children ages 3-5 and their caregivers, will help your child read, sing, play, look, and create together while exploring artistic themes.

It's free and open to the public, but registration via Eventbrite is required. Registration for Van Gogh to Playdough: Art for Pre-K opens at 10:00 AM on the third Monday of every month for classes held the following month (please register for only one date, as the same program is repeated during the entire month). One adult chaperone is required for every three children.

If you have a large group, please contact us directly at (801) 422-1140 to arrange a way to accommodate you.

Please note that the Museum opens at 10:00 AM. If you arrive a few minutes early, please let our Security Guard know that you are here for Van Gogh to Playdough, and he or she will lead you to our waiting area inside the Museum.

As this activity is likely to be fully booked, if you can no longer attend, please let us know so we can free up your spots for other children.

Registration opens July 15
