Join us to experiment with spraying, splatting and dripping different types of paint to make a truly messy masterpiece. Add in another simple tool – tape! – and explore the technique of resist painting. This program will happen light rain or shine. Heavy rain or other inclement weather may result in changes to the program, or cancellation.
The Make a Mess program series introduces STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) concepts through sensory-based hands-on experiences, imagination, and fun.
Enjoy this program and more at the all-NEW Discovery Museum! In our new, 16,000sf building we’ve re-created the best hands-on STEAM exhibits from our original two museums—for little kids, big kids, and their grownups—and added many exciting new ones, including water, air, making/tinkering, and more! Come play!
Drop-in 11:00am – 11:30am Journal Making, Discovery Woods
11:30am and 1:30pm: Nature Walk, Great Hill Conservation Land
Explore the natural world through science, art, and writing. We’ll be making nature journals and then taking them on a nature walk through the Great Hill conservation land to search for signs of fall. If you’ve made a nature journal with us before, bring it to add new activity pages. Please note that the conservation land trails are not ADA or stroller accessible, please wear appropriate footwear and clothing – this program is weather and conditions dependent.
