This amazing graphic arts resource is a wonderland of inspiration for every kind of crafty…
Whether you’re visiting from out of town or a local, the FREE Second Sunday programs at the High Museum are fun, family-friendly programming not to be missed!
One of our favorite family day activities in Atlanta is Second Sundays at the High Museum. But if you follow me on Instagram and watch my IG Stories, you probably already know that.
So what is Second Sundays exactly?
On the second Sunday of every month, the High Museum offers FREE admission to all visitors and features super fun, family-friendly programming. Kids of all ages will find something to enjoy.
The activities vary from month to month but usually feature an art-related story time and (for younger audiences) and special art-making workshops for kids of all ages. (We’ve been going since my youngest was 3, and she’s always been able to keep up with the crafts. )
Exhibit Inspired kid-friendly art making workshops
Our favorite part is definitely the art workshops which are usually inspired by one of the special visiting exhibits.
My girls have learned to collage like Eric Carle
Silk Screen like Andy Warhol
And create comic strips inspired by comic genius of Mo Willems.
(Sorry-I forgot to take pictures of this but you get the idea…it was crafty, it was fun, and it was educational)
Know before you go Pro Tips:
- Be sure to reserve your spot online. Sometimes it gets crowded and you don’t want to miss out!
- Be sure to grab your free blue SmART Box for kids at the high museum or if you have one, don’t forget to bring it back for a free refill. The SmART Box is filled with a notebook and pencil or crayons so kids can take notes/doodles as they explore the museum. My kids love it. It really helps them stay engaged with the art work and get more out of each visit.
- Backpacks are not allowed, even super cute mom backpack-style purses. So be sure to bring a shoulder bag. If you forget, you’ll be asked to carry your backpack on one shoulder or to check it (for free) at the coat check.
- Parking: you can park in the garage, but it’s suggested that you take MARTA. There’s a MARTA stop right behind the Woodruff Arts Center.
