Second and fourth Saturday of each month

10 - 11 am

$5 for one child + one parent or caregiver // FREE for MF Members


NEW! Register for 8 sessions for only $30!


Children ages 3 to 5 and their parents or caregivers are invited to explore, play + grow! Focused on a variety of themes and installations, participants can enjoy story time and work on a collaborative hands-on project. Mini-Factory is a mobile, adaptable pop-up space students can help to build and we use to explore new ideas and concepts.


Upcoming programs include:



March 25, 2017: TEXTURE

Soft, slimy, rough… exploring different types of texture through art can provoke the senses and curiosity. Students will observe, discuss and feel how artists achieve various textures when creating works of art. Warning: this will be fun!


April 8, 2017: NATURE

Let’s explore art and nature together!  Learn how some artists use soil, plants and rocks to make ever-changing artwork, or how other artists try to bring nature inside the gallerie. How does NATURE inspire you?   


April 22, 2017: ME

I’m as brave as a tiger… and quiet as a clam. Who are you? Students will explore self-expression through children’s literature, art and activities. Learn vocabulary to express your feelings and thoughts, and we'll guide them through the galleries as we observe how art is a form of self-expression.
