Free Family Sundays: Make a Bead Mosaic
Free Family Sundays are back with free monthly art-making workshops for the whole family. Express your inner artist and explore works from the collection and exhibitions with guest artists and educators.
Join us for a workshop in Fox Court on January 29 from 2–5 p.m. for a hands-on bead mosaic workshop inspired by the ancient Antioch Mosaics.

Stop by Antioch Court from 3–4 p.m. for a docent-led tour experience.
Free Family Sundays is a drop-in, art-making program designed for families with children ages 6–9 or older. RSVPs are not required. Art-making supplies are provided.
