SANTA PAULA, CA – Join us for Free Family Day at the Santa Paula Art Museum on the first Sunday of every month from 12:00pm to 3:00pm! In addition to enjoying our current exhibits, you’ll experience hands-on art activities for the whole family, with local artists sharing new ideas and projects each month. On Sunday, January 5, 2020, join us for “Carry What You Care About,” an art project that makes a difference! Inspired by artist Andrea Vargas and her “Care Bags” project, we’ll show you how to turn everyday shopping bags into art for activism. With Andrea’s creative and impassioned Care Bags as examples, you’ll get to choose your cause, then visualize and paint your own statement to carry and share with others. Activate your voice with art! Admission is free, all are welcome, and all materials will be provided.
The Santa Paula Art Museum’s Free Family Days also coincide with Free First Sunday at all of Santa Paula’s museums. Santa Paula’s four museums are all located along a one mile stretch of the city’s historic downtown, and all four museums offer free admission on the first Sunday of every month.
