K-STATE'S BEACH MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST VALENTINE-THEMED WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS AND THE FAMILY
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art will have two workshops for sweethearts inspired to make valentines.
A workshop for adults will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3.
"This would make a great date-night activity," said Kathrine Schlageck, the museum's senior educator. "We often hear that adults would like to participate in their kids' art activities. This is a great chance to do so."
Those who want to surprise their sweetheart with a handmade valentine are also welcome.
Desserts and refreshments will be provided, along with all materials and supplies needed to create valentines. The cost is $10 per person and reservations are required by calling 785-532-7718.
Schlageck will lead a workshop for the whole family from 2-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7. The museum's current "Gail Gregg: The Album Series" exhibition will be used as inspiration.
"Valentine supplies with a picture frame theme will be provided for all participants," Schlageck said. "Of course, all the traditional lace, doilies and paper will be available, too."
Refreshments will be served and the cost is $5 per child. Beach Buddy members pay half price and will receive a special gift. Beach Buddy memberships may be purchased at the workshop. Reservations for the family workshop are not required, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.
For more information, contact the Beach Museum of Art at 785-532-7718 or drop by the museum on the southeast corner of the K-State campus at 14th Street and Anderson Avenue. Free visitor parking is available next to the building. Normal museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.
