Summer Trips to Channel Creativity.

If you’re looking for a summer vacation or weekend trip that’s a bit different, why not try one with an art focus?  Get creative with your children by visiting a museum art program.  Here are four:

CRAYOLA EXPERIENCE, Easton, PA: Spend a day at the 60,000 square foot factory in the Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania.  There are 25+ hands on exhibits where kids can doodle in the dark on a backlit board, name a crayon color, visit a color playground, and be a star in their own coloring book page.

DALI DOCENT PROGRAM, ST. PETERSBURG, FL: Here children ages 9-13 will have a chance to experience the legendary artist Salvador Dali during the junior docent program.  They can participate in the Breakfast with Dali program.  Graduates share impressions of their favorite Dali works as well as participate in story time and various interactive programs throughout the year.

PEANUTS, SONOMA COUNTY, CA: If you’re a peanuts fan or your kids like cartoons, try a visit to the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center.  You’ll get to meet professional cartoonists and watch their techniques. You can watch some of Schulz’ cartoon strips in animated form.

ART OF THE SOUTH, AUGUSTA, GA: Visit the first museum dedicated to art and artists of the south at the Morris Museum of Art.  There are family-friendly programs throughout the year, as well as weekday Mommy & Me programs, and special exhibits.

  1. Those would be great places to take the kids! The university in our town has a wonderful art museum (the structure is designed by I.M. Pei!), and I used to take my boys there often. I would love to go to the Crayola Experience place myself!
