May Family First Saturday- Treasure Maps

One day open studio
Saturday afternoon
May 6, 2017
12pm - 2pm
FREE
Join us on May 6 for our monthly Family First Saturday. STLAG will provide a variety of papers, stamps, and drawing materials for children to create their own treasure maps. Make a map of your own design leading to  hidden treasure! This is a great chance for children to learn about geography or create lands of their own imagination. But what use is a treasure map without treasure? Bring in rocks from your backyard or items from your recycling and we will provide metallic paints to transform these objects into precious gems.
*All children must be accompanied by an adult
Family First Saturdays is made possible by the Jeane Stoller Foundation.
