Enjoy three floors of art exhibitions, games in the galleries, interactives, and artmaking projects in GRAM Studio. GRAM staff and volunteers will lead all activities and provide all materials.

Activity Stations

Become an Artist — Scouts put their creativity to work in the GRAM Studio! Everyone is invited to create a colorful print using paint and Legos. Play with the materials and techniques to make a personalized, playful work of art to take home.

Creative Clay — Scouts will go on an art adventure through the exhibition Underneath Everything: Humility and Grandeur in Contemporary Ceramics to explore how clay can be transformed into works of art, each with its own unique story. Then, scouts will experiment with clay to create a storytelling sculpture of their own! 

Brick Builders — Scouts will discover the art and design of Lego sculptures in the exhibition, Brick by Brick. Scouts will assemble creative sculptures and displays to show at the art museum and receive their own brick kit to design a work of art as souvenir of their visit.
