Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) is proud to offer its free Afternoon Art program for the winter 2021 season, giving kids and their caregivers opportunities to enjoy art-making together. The program will be held at The Museum in Ketchum on select Friday afternoons in February and March 2021. Each offering will consist of two separate 50-minute sessions, one starting at 2:30 and the other at 3:30 p.m. Spacing is limited to four families per session, and preregistration is required.Designed for families with kids who are 5–12 years of age, Afternoon Art will be offered Feb. 19, Feb. 26 and March 5. Families will make art, view the exhibition and explore The Museum’s Art Lab. Projects will vary each week:
Feb. 19 — Shape and Color Collages
Feb. 26 — Bead Designs
March 5 — Family Portraits
“We are excited to bring back our Afternoon Art family program this season,” said Katelyn Foley, SVMoA’s Director of Education and Humanities. “The winter session of Afternoon Art will take place over three days, and the projects will connect to the BIG IDEA project Deeds Not Words: Women Working for Change.”
“Because of COVID-19, we have created new protocols to promote safety during these sessions, which include participants’ registering a family table ahead of time,” continued Foley. “Each project is designed for families with school-age children to create and work together. Families will have 50 minutes in the museum for art-making and experiencing the exhibition.”
In the interest of community health and safety, SVMoA is adhering to CDC guidelines and the Governor of Idaho’s orders as it invites people back to its museum, classes and programs. Museum visitors and class participants should wear face masks and abide by social distancing recommendations. Anyone who feels ill or lives with someone who is ill should stay at home. Also, SVMoA is limiting the number of participants in its museum and programs to assist with safe social distancing.
