Halloween is coming, which means it’s time for fun costumes, tasty treats, and spoo~oooo~ooky stories! Want to be the best storyteller around? Get inspired by shadow art, including the 2,000-year-old art of Chinese shadow puppetry! We’ll explore the science of shadows and make amazing crafts that use shadows to tell stories. Your imagination is the limit!
Paint, build, craft, and collage with us! Inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and local artists, MOCACREATE explores different themes every month. MOCACREATE workshops are designed with families in mind, but all are welcome!
FREE — scroll down to RSVP! RSVP optional, but appreciated.
