Has your family visited the new Madison Children’s Museum yet? (confession, we’ve already been there four times!)
Along with all of the permanent exhibits, the museum also has a continuous rotation of new and exciting events. Below is info on the upcoming Weekend Workshops.
Chickens for Everyone, Rooftop Ramble
Saturday, August 21, 10–11a.m.
Come to our Rooftop Ramble farm in the sky to explore the world of chickens. What do chickens eat, where do they live and how do we keep them in the city? Learn everything you ever wanted to know about eggs and the life cycle of the chicken. Hold a baby chick and a full grown chicken. Plant an herb seedling in an eggshell pot to take home. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, contact McKenzie Glynn-Zdrale, Membership and Registration Coordinator 608.256.6445, ext. 550, email@example.com.
Dream Desk Workshop, Art Studio
Saturday, August 21, 2–4 p.m.
Join us for a parent-child workshop based on the “Desks of Dreams” Project that Emerson Elementary School conducted this past spring. Emerson art teacher Rachel Shramm will work with participants to come up with a design and create unique artwork to transform a donated school desk into a piece of functional art. The finished desk will join a “Desks of Dreams” desk created by Emerson students to create a quiet drawing and sitting area within the Art Studio. Ages 5 and up with an accompanying adult. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, contact McKenzie Glynn-Zdrale, Membership and Registration Coordinator 608.256.6445, ext. 550, firstname.lastname@example.org.
