During Fall Break, Oct. 18-22, 2019, at the Denver Art Museum (DAM), kids can enjoy several interactive exhibitions and hands-on artmaking in the galleries and in the Paint Studio—all for free thanks to the Free for Kids program.
Two in-gallery Create-n-Takes, The Shape of Feelings and Light the Way, will both be available every day from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on level 4 for visiting families to get creative and discover art at the DAM in new ways.
The Paint Studio, located on level 1, is open during regular museum hours and offers several hands-on painting activities for visitors of all ages. On Saturday, Oct. 19, and Sunday, Oct. 20, catch local artist Kaitlyn Tucek demonstrating The Expressive Figure: Painting as Narrative from noon to 3 p.m. in the studio.
Most of the exhibitions on view at the DAM during Fall Break are included in general admission and are free for kids; these exhibitions include The Light Show, Treasures of British Art: The Berger Collection, Shantell Martin: Words and Lines, Eyes On: Jonathan Saiz and Eyes On: Erika Harrsch. Step into the shining world of the First Light Family Space on level 3 and try hands-on activities inspired by The Light Show.
Opening on Oct. 21, Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature will not be included in general admission and will require a separate timed ticket for entry. Some special exhibition tickets currently remain for Oct. 21 and 22. Monet tickets for nonmembers start at $27 for adults, tickets for youth ages 6-18 are capped at $5, and tickets for children ages 5 and under are free.
Fall Break activities are included in general admission, which is free for youth 18 and under and DAM members every day. All Fall Break activities are presented in English and Spanish. For more information on Fall Break at the DAM, visit denverartmuseum.org/
