Please Touch the Art!
September 9 - October 17
In order to create art one must be willing to PLAY! The greatest innovations in the history of art have been the artists willing to try something new, something that had not been done before. Essentially, the way to discover new ways of creating art is by playing with art. Discover this yourself during “Please Touch the Art!” an interactive, hands-on exhibit for families of all ages that opens September 9 at the Art Center of Battle Creek.
Art is a prime example of how we learn through play. Visitors will be encouraged to explore the world of art through the five art elements: color, line, shape, texture and form. Each element will be showcased within the galleries with artwork and hands-on activities. Let your child (or the child within you) be your guide, do not worry so much about the end result of the art experience but focus on the journey that each experience takes you on. Each person has a unique and personal connection with art. We hope children and adults alike will develop self-confidence and individuality by experimenting with their art.
Come experience this exhibit through hands-on art activities with paint, markers and other media, play art games, try building something and view original and reproduction art work. Visitors will learn about the how’s and why’s of art while they have the opportunity to be creative.
