ARTful Adventures

For children ages 5-10 with an adult companion. Look, listen, and create together! Bring your child to the Museum to look at and discuss art, listen to a story, and then engage in a hands-on art project. Led by Museum educators, each month’s ARTful adventure focuses on a specific theme to explore and be inspired by. Stay after the program to explore the Museum on your own or with new acquaintances, or further your ARTful Adventure with Let’s Explore Backpacks or The Great Art Caper (see below).

Let’s Explore Backpacks
The Museum’s distinct Let’s Explore Backpacks offer activity-filled ways for children (ages 5-12) and their adult companions to explore the outdoor sculpture collection on the University’s beautiful campus. Children then create their own works of art to take home. Various backpack themes are available.

Funding supporting has been provided by Bethpage Federal Credit Union.

The Great Art Caper
Children (ages 7-12) and their adult companions uncover clues to help solve an Art Caper mystery in the outdoor sculpture collection on Hofstra University’s South Campus. Children become detectives and have fun while discovering more about these works. Pick up all backpack and caper activity materials at the Emily Lowe Gallery during open hours year-round until 3 p.m. Return all backpacks by 4 p.m. and keep your completed works of art.

All backpack and caper activities are FREE!
