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 an archaeology project, and play interactive games. Demonstrations emphasize the way art keeps everyone connected to the past and improves the present, and why preserving art is important for the future. 

As the former estate of the Hogg family—one of the great art-collecting families in Texas history—Bayou Bend serves as a focal point for the style, medium, and period of art represented at this special event.

Drop in! Admission is free. Last entry is at 4:30 p.m.
