Free family arts day

"eat a bug" at Free Family Arts Day

The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) presents its Free Family Arts Day on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Children and their families will get to participate in art activities including candy corn collages, sugar skulls, Stout sculptures, decorate trick-or-treat bags, ghost cookies, and Sense of Home paintings. Activities are inspired by AMSET’s current exhibition, Sense of Home: The Art of Richard Stout and the fall season.

Families will be tempted to “eat a bug” and enjoy folk dancing by the Mexican Heritage Society at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

The costume contest kicks off at noon and children are encouraged to come dressed in their best outfits for a chance to win prizes.

Complimentary cookies and punch will be provided, as well as free face painting. A concession stand serving ballpark-style food will be available. Throughout the day, AMSET will draw winners for art supply baskets.

Admission to this event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit or call (409) 832-3432.
