MiniMasters Family Day

By Maria Iafelice, Education Assistant

MiniMasters is an educational outreach program, bringing a little bit of the museum to Akron Summit Community Action Inc. Head Start preschool classrooms.  After learning about the lines, shapes and colors in William Sommer’s watercolor portraits and creating works of their own, the preschool artists and their families were invited to a day at the museum.  During the MiniMasters Family Day, families made paintings together, viewed their artworks on display and helped a percussion group from the University of Akron drum up some noise! Special thanks to the Tuesday Musical Association for organizing the fun and interactive percussion group.

We are looking forward to our next Sunday Sampler on January 2nd, 2011!
