Area families will be introduced to the world of art through Family Art Night, beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23 in Porter Hall.
This hands-on learning experience invites parents and children to view and learn about the exhibits on display in the Porter Hall galleries through an interpretive art guide. Under the direction of a team of PSU art education students, participants will then have the opportunity to create take-home art projects that reflect the content and materials used by the professional artists in the exhibits.
Family Art Night is focused on those ages 5-17. Children ages 5-8 should be accompanied by an adult. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Department of Art at 620-235-4302.
