SVM is Relaunching our FREE “Create on Slate Program”
The Slate Valley Museum is re-launching our highly popular “Create on Slate” craft program for children. Once monthly, kids will be able to create their own artworks on slate roofing tiles or rocks, and will be able to take them home after their visit.
Starting on May 17, the program will run the 3rd Thursday of each month from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
Students are not required to register and can drop-in after school to make art and spend time with their peers. “Create on Slate” is FREE and open to students in pre-K, and on through high school.
All attendees must be accompanied by a parent.
