The Pumpkin Patch: A Family Art Festival

Saturday, October 29th | 10-3pm | Free

WMA presents The Pumpkin Patch, a free family art festival on Saturday, October 29th from 10-3pm at the museum in downtown Dothan. Enjoy WMA’s garden transformed into a giant pumpkin patch, with hands-on artmaking stations throughout. At this event, everyone can create and take home up to five handmade works of art through action painting, 3D paper sculptures, printmaking, and decorating your own custom bag to carry all your creations. And, each family can go home with their own painted pumpkin! 

Galleries will be open for all visitors, with a special art scavenger hunt to bring families together to enjoy and talk about art together. Hot Glass Academy will be demonstrating live glass blowing outside at the festival, and will have an installation of glass pumpkins indoors, with the opportunity to purchase and collect your own work of glass art. The festival will also host demonstrating artists for live painting and marbling.

Costumes are encouraged for all ages, so bring the whole crew out dressed with imagination and creativity, and capture family memories with photos in the pumpkin patch, or with a drawing from our Portrait-O-Magic!

Free popcorn, lemonade, and candy will be available to all, and food trucks will be on site for additional paid offerings.

Don’t forget to visit the WMA pop-up shop to buy museum merch, including our popular ‘Art Elevates the Everyday’ t-shirt, mugs, stickers, patches, and more!

Registration is not required. In case of inclement weather, the festival will be held inside the museum. For more information, please call 334-794-3871.



The event is finished.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.
