Entirely Kids Day: All About Animals

3/16/2019 / 10:00am - 3:00pm

Excited about spring break? We are, too! Join us for a fun, free Entirely Kids Day featuring incredible art, music, and museum exploration—all about animals!  Inspired by the exhibition The Elephant in the Room: Animal as Model, we will explore the way we, as humans, see our furry friends. Tangerine, the Art Center Café, will feature a special kid’s menu that afternoon.

Drop-in any time and participate for these activities:

  • Painting Animal Tracks: Mimic animals that roll, bounce, and fly by painting with our hooves, paws, horns, tusks, and tails
  • Instrument Petting Zoo: Create wild or prrrfect sounds with the Des Moines Symphony’s Instrument Petting Zoo
  • Drawing Taxidermy Animals: Practice observation and drawing techniques at easels in the studios examining stuffed specimens loaned from the Polk County Conservation Board
  • Museum Hunt: Self-guided animal search through the exhibition The Elephant in the Room
