|Johnson County Museum to present Spring Break Arts program on March 14, 15, 17, and 18|
Join the Johnson County Museum during Spring Break for a series of art programs designed for children four to ten years old with an adult.
This program is called Spring Break Arts and will use daily themes to introduce kids to art processes and fun as well as to historic objects from the museum’s collection. These programs last two hours each and will take place beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 14, Tuesday, March 15, Thursday, March 17, and Friday March 18 at The Johnson County Museum, 6305 Lackman Road, Shawnee. A parent must stay with children, and participants should dress to get messy.
The theme for Monday's program is "Flexible Glass Sculptures," which participants will create using wire, tissue paper, and contact paper! Tuesday's theme is "Exploring Salt and Watercolors," in which participants will experiment with watercolors, salt, and glue! Thursday's theme is "Shaving Cream Marbled Paper," and we'll be designing our own marbled paper using shaving cream and liquid watercolors. And rounding out the week, "Circle Stamp Painting" is Friday's theme for a program where participants will make their own stamps using simple Styrofoam cups.
The cost for each day's two-hour program is $3 per person, including adults, and museum members are free. Drop-in participations for families are welcome, but groups of ten or more must preregister. Individuals and groups can preregister by calling (913) 715-2575.
No Spring Break Arts Program is being presented on Wednesday, March 16, because a session of the museum program Jo Ho, Storyteller for ages three to five will be presented that day. This program begins at 10 a.m., has the theme “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad," and costs $2 per person, including adults (museum members are free).
The Johnson County Museum became a department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District effective Jan. 1.
