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.
