Art in the Park
Drop-in visitor art making is available at the Ruth Lilly Visitors Pavilion in The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park: 100 Acres. Work with teaching artists to create your own work of art inspired by the natural environment. Mix a little art-making into your nature time with a different art activity each month. Projects are designed to be accessible and fun for museum visitors of all ages and all levels of art-making experience.
May / Sticks and Stones!
What can you make with sticks and stones? Turn nature into creative objects using materials found lying around outdoors. We promise no bones will be hurt in the making of your art!
June / Clay Play
We’re celebrating National Clay Week the entire month of June! Get your hands dirty as we turn the earth’s oldest substance into works of art. A little dirt under your nails will do you good!
July / POP Art
Continue the celebration of our country’s independence with some “POP Art”! One part science and one part paint, equals a beautifully, bursting good time!
August / Ink Blot Critters
Turn random ink blots into “Ink-sects” and other strange critters as we play using art and imagination. What kind of bugs and critters will you see?
