About the Program

Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!

October 5–27: Spice Boxes—Create your own spice box with a unique blend of fragrances.

November 2–December 1: Compositions of Contrast—Create a black-and-white snapshot of your daily life inspired by the photography of young Stanley Kubrick.

December 7–29: Winter Suncatchers—Bring light and warmth into your home by creating a suncatcher.


“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
