Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens presents an afternoon celebrating art—created by and for children—that helps forge a connection to Texas and American heritage. Families can make art; participate in a collaborative group project; play interactive games; and see demonstrations that emphasize the way art keeps everyone connected to the past and improves the present, and why preserving art is important for the future. 

Free! Drop in to participate. Last admission is at 4:30 p.m.
