UPCOMING FREE FAMILY DAYS.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10
Get ready for Monet and create lasting impressions at the historic Telfair Academy by exploring the painting techniques and the color theory that inspired one of the greatest movements in art. We will help you make your own color book. Go on an impressionism scavenger hunt, play color games in the galleries, and enjoy impressionist music in the beautiful rotunda.
Activities geared to all ages and bound to leave an “Impression”
A scavenger hunt, color games in the galleries, creation of a coloring book, still life drawing, along with violin and harp music in the beautiful rotunda, are all part of the Free Family Day at the Telfair Academy on October 10 from 1-4 pm.
The Free Family Day activities are inspired by Telfair Museums’ upcoming Monet and American Impressionism exhibition which brings four paintings of French master Claude Monet to Savannah for the first time in the city’s history.
Alongside Monet’s master pieces will be 50 paintings by many of the leading artists of American Impressionism.
The family event, offered free of charge, provides a special experience for visitors of all ages to create lasting impressions by exploring plein air painting and the developments in color theory that inspired Impressionism–one of the greatest movements in art. Free Family Day will take place in the Telfair Academy located on Telfair Square.
Using Telfair’s impressionist paintings as their inspiration, Free Family Day guests are invited to explore painting techniques, make their own coloring book, go on a gallery scavenger hunt, create their own still life Impressionist pieces, and relax in the beautiful Rotunda while enjoying music performed by New Art Ensembles from 1:45-3:15 pm.
Docents will be giving tours of the Telfair Academy at 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm and 4 pm.
From 2:30-4pm, visitors are invited to the Jepson Center to view the work created in the Telfair Museum Outreach program, completed in collaboration with Molly Lieberman and Loop It Up Savannah with funding from the City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs, the Alan S. Gaynor Fund of the Savannah Community Foundation, and the Georgia Council for the Arts.
