Load up the kids and head to the McNay Art Museum on Sunday, July 20, for an afternoon of art activities, demonstrations and performances. “It’s a Beauty-full Day” free family event starts at 1 p.m. and celebrates beauty in all its forms. The afternoon will be themed around the museum’s current exhibition, Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting, and will give families the chance to create patterned, layered paper creations using marbling and dying techniques.
Little ones will enjoy a multi-sensory “tot spot” designed for children under 5 and hosted by the San Antonio Children’s Museum. And don’t miss the performance by Urban 15, San Antonio’s local drum and dance group, which will combine color, texture and pattern in a whole new way.
The McNay Art Museum is located at 6000 North New Braunfels. For more information, visit www.mcnayart.org or call 210-824-5368.
