Free Family Day

  • Santa Paula Art Museum 123 N 10th Street Santa Paula, CA 93060 USA (map)

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 exhibitions, you’ll experience hands-on art activities for the whole family, with local artists sharing new ideas and projects each month. On Sunday, April 7, join us for a fun and creative assemblage project - "art boxes" inspired by American assemblage artist Joseph Cornell. Artist Karen Browdy and students from her Conversations in Art History class will share their own Cornell inspired "art boxes" and lead guests in a creative exploration of materials and design. Be creative, have fun, and make art while you make memories with friends and family! Admission is free for everyone and families will have access to lots of free art materials.

The Santa Paula Art Museum’s Free Family Days 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. Make a day of it and visit the Santa Paula Art Museum, the Agriculture Museum, the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula, and the California Oil Museum for free! Hours and activities will vary by location, so be sure to check each museum’s website for full details.
