Looking for something to do at the end of the school day? Travel the globe without leaving your home! Participate in live virtual interactive workshops and activities designed for school-aged children and their families. Your registration includes access to a special themed Padlet with supplemental activities and instructions.

Join us to learn about a traditional painting process popular in Mesoamerica. Travel through Mexico and Central America as we explore beautiful frescoes, or paintings, that adorn buildings and artifacts throughout the region. Watch as a local artist teaches the process of preparing the painting surface with sand, lime, and water before a fresco is created. Learn how to replicate this basic technique and design your own fresco with the group! Best for kids ages 5-12.
