Family Art Projects Return to Wave Hill in October

The Family Art Project team at Wave Hill is thrilled to be able to begin to welcome families back onsite–carefully–in October, with projects closely tuned to the season. Guests will be exploring plant myths, what it means to love the land and giving special attention to Indigenous People’s Day (October 12) and Remembrance Day for Lost Species (November 30).
As always, the program will be offered Saturday and Sunday mornings, from 10AM to 1PM. While art-making is still the focus, it will be a little more structured than usual, and storytelling will be on hiatus until it is safe for to offer it again. To assure that everyone feels safe and welcomed, special rules will be in effect:
  • Family Art Projects will happen outdoors.
  • Masks and social distancing are required.
  • The location will be the Conifer Slope, just outside the side entrance to the Family Art Project. Please enter from the roadway that runs along the front of Wave Hill House and the lawn leading down to the Conifer Slope.
  • The number of families able to participate at any given time will be limited to about five. If you arrive and capacity is full, program staff will provide a “come back” card so you will have first entry for the next session.
  • Shine only. Check the website the morning of for the status of the day’s program.
  • Periodically throughout the program staff will follow a cleaning protocol to be sure that all materials and surfaces are safe for you to use.
