Second Saturdays at the HUM: Scope It!

Look, share and create on the Second Saturday of the month (Sept. - Nov.) from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Hofstra University Museum!  In each session, led by HUM educators, kids ages 5-10 years, and their grown-up companions explore works of art and engage in a hands-on activity inspired by what they have seen and discussed! In the November session, Scope It!, attendees will “Look into” the mystical, colorful urban landscapes of Doug Hilson, and then make your own kaleidoscope to bring some of the magic home.
