    January (Family) Sundays: Flourishing Futures
    Drop-in Art-making Workshop
    “(Ages 3 and older with accompanying adults) Sundays are for families! Bring your family to the Rubin Museum for a Sunday afternoon of activities both kids and grownups will enjoy. Drop into the Education Center for some art-making, enjoy our 2:00 p.m. family exhibition tour, and go on your own thematic gallery search.”

    You are also encouraged to:

    “Tuck your worries away in an envelope and seal it with a blossoming, folded lotus to symbolize a fresh start—made by you during Family Sundays this January. Grow into your future self by making an artful reminder to overcome your fears and journey toward a better tomorrow!”
