Youngsters got to explore their artistic side Saturday during Family Day at Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art.
Each child who turned out for the event on the Evanston campus got a box of art supplies
and perhaps a little help from the grownups in realizing their artistic ambitions.
The could experiment with print-making and try their hand at sculpting with modeling clay.
Several dozen children from 5 to 12 years old turned out for the afternoon event, which
also featured a map to lead kids on a tour of the sculptures in the garden around the museum
including a 1981 work, "Interior Form" by British sculptor Henry Moore.
