In the interest of the safety and well-being of WMA’s guests and staff, in-person First Saturday Family Day gatherings have been temporarily suspended. Grab a FREE FSFD art kit at the museum’s front desk and create at home!
New for 2021: Winter Quarter First Saturday Family Day Dates
Saturdays are the perfect day for children and families to create and explore art together! First Saturday Family Day, one of WMA’s longest-running educational programs, offers free art activities on the first Saturday of every month for kids of all ages and their families.
In the spring of 2020, First Saturday Family Day transitioned to a virtual format on WMA’s Facebook page. Beginning February 6, 2021, WMA will offer monthly FSFD art packets that guests can pick up at the museum. Each packet will contain detailed instructions and all supplies needed to create that month’s FSFD activity!
Please stop by WMA on the first Saturday of every month to pick up a FSFD activity packet. The free packets will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone.
Be sure to check WMA’s Facebook page for more information and video demonstrations of each monthly activity!
February 6 – Valentine’s Day Cards | March 6 – Chopped Art Challenge | April 3 – Watercolor Resist Project
SATURDAY | MARCH 6
In order to celebrate and honor the incredible creativity of our area students on display this month in our Youth Art Month exhibition, we thought it would be fun to host an art challenge!
Have you ever watched Chopped or Chopped: Junior? The contestants are given a random assortment of ingredients and then have to create some culinary magic! That gave us an idea: why not try something similar for First Saturday Family Day? Welcome to the Chopped Art Challenge!
Your kit will contain complete instructions but we will also post a how-to video or instructional photos on our social media pages on Saturday morning. 50 kits will be available and distributed on a first come, first-served basis. So, swing by the museum to pick up your kit and take a moment to explore the galleries while you’re there!
First Saturday Family Day is made possible by grants from Southeast Alabama Community Foundation and Walmart Giving.
