4th Floor Cultural Studios

It’s the start of a new year so join us for an afternoon learning how to create some mini-journals!  Between the pages, capture your drawings, collages, stories and thoughts.  Set some new goals for 2020 and spend some time reflecting with family about the year that has past.  Together fold, cut, paste, stitch and decorate some little books to use and enjoy.






Third Floor New Media Gallery Learning Lab


We have lots of iPads and Lots of bandwidth, so we’re having a WiFi Jam Session. We are going to connect all the Learning Lab’s iPads to each other, so you can play and record live music with family, friends and new friends. The greatest part is you will all be totally synchronized. We will have electric pianos, guitars, drums, flutes, violins and even some instruments we have never heard of all at your disposal.
