Art supplies for the hands-on activities are provided by the Kirkpatrick Family Fund, and though the activity is designed for the museum’s younger guests, all family members are invited to participate and encourage their young artists’ creative process.
“The fun thing about Family Day is seeing kids bring their older family members and witnessing them get the whole family involved. It’s what the event is about — students visiting with family, feeling ownership of the museum and making museum visits a part of their own creative process rather than just being spectators,” McWilliams said.
The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is located at 555 Elm Ave. Admission is free through the generous support of the University of Oklahoma Office of the President and the OU Athletics Department. For more information call 405-325-3272 or visit ou.edu/fjjma.
