ABOUT OUR FAMILY FIRST WORKSHOPS


Designed for children in grades 1 through 6 and their favorite adult, these monthly workshops encourage making art together. Led by Reynolda House education specialists, families tour the Museum to view selected works of art in the historic house and galleries, which become the inspiration for a special art project back in the studio. 

For registration information, contact Julia Hood at 336.758.5599 or at hoodje@reynoldahouse.org
