Salt and Water and more!
January 24, 2015
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Family Discovery Gallery
Salt is a mineral that is mined or found in shallow pools of water in many places throughout the world. For thousands of years it has been used to preserve foods, season foods and sometimes it has even been used in place of money. You might not think of using it for an art project, but that is exactly what Kate Baumgart is planning for today. You will also use clean water along with glue and watercolor paints on a heavy mat board. What will happen with all of these ingredients? You may be surprised at your results!
Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
