SLOMA’s Second Saturdays program encourages intergenerational learning and creative expression for children of all ages. Every second Saturday from 11 AM to 1 PM, families are invited to SLOMA’s lawn to learn about the visual arts together using our unique activity kits and create an art project inspired by our current exhibitions.

Each art activity kit contains all the materials and bilingual (English & Spanish) instructions required for an engaging visual arts experience that promotes self-discovery, imagination, collaboration, and creativity. Kits can be completed at our Second Saturdays booth or taken home.
