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!

Celebrate (almost summer) with origami + collage!
Summer is nearly here and we’re already dreaming of the ocean! This month’s kit will show you how to create origami fish, complete with the supplies to create an underwater collage habitat for your finned friends! If you enjoy origami, be sure to stop by the education gallery to see Colin Crowder’s original origami sculpture, entitled Honeybee!
Fifty kits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturday, May 1st. See you then! Make sure you tag us in your creations! We love to see what you create!
First Saturday Family Day is made possible by a grant from Walmart Giving.
