April is Jazz Appreciation Month. Listen to the smooth sounds of Idaho’s own Gene Harris and design a piece of artwork inspired by the music and instruments of jazz musicians.
Family Second Saturdays will take place on the second Saturday of each month. Families are encouraged to drop in any time to create and learn together through these hands-on activities.
All ages welcome! Free with Museum admission.
