These are excellent and fun opportunities for kids of ages corresponding to grades K-8. Kids should have accompanying adult(s); limit two children per adult.

Classes are held at the new MAA location: Mizzou North, 115 West Business Loop 70. Meet inside the front door and/or in the Cast Gallery, which is by the front entrance. Free visitor parking is in the farthest row of the parking lot from the front door, and the spaces closest to Garth Ave. Alternately, transportation is available from the MU campus via the Renew Mizzou Shuttle (PDF route map).

    July 30: The Way Things Go

    View the art film, “The Way Things Go”, about a kinetic sculpture. Then create your own mobile with parts that move in response to other parts. FCMo Note: This film is awesome! Highly recommended!
