Lauren Rogers Museum of Art plans Spring Break Activities -
Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will hold a Spring Break Festival Tuesday, March 17 from 1 - 3 p.m. on the Museum's front lawn. The Audubon Zoomobile is making a return visit this year and will showcase a variety of exotic animals and the Blues Rangers from DeSoto National Forest will provide music. Art activities will feature recycled materials such as newspaper hats and decorated paper owls, and a St. Patrick's day shamrock activity. The festival is free and open to the public and intended for the whole family.
The Museum will also hold its annual "Spring Break Art Break" classes March 18 - 20 for children age kindergarten through sixth grade. Recycling will be the theme as participants create cereal box art, soda can piggy banks, and other recyclable treasures. The schedule will be 10:00 a.m. until noon for kindergarten through third grade and 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. for fourth through sixth grade. Classes will be held in the Museum Annex. Cost is $35 per child for LRMA members and $45 for non-members. As space is limited, reservations will only be held with payment.
