Art Detectives

July 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


How many ways can an artist draw a cat? Let’s see how many ways Brian Wenzel can in his book They All Saw a Cat, and then look at cats within the KIA collection. Finally learn how to create you own versions of cats.  How many can you think of and create?

ARTY THE ART DETECTIVE is ready to explore art with children 4-8 years old and see them inspired to learn, create and share! Reserve a free art kit (limited supply) by emailing "> All kits must be reserved one week in advance from event date to schedule pick up.
