Event Details

Designed for art lovers of any age, Entirely Kids Day: Playing House at the Des Moines Art Center is inspired by the warmth of home, the joy of play, and the must-see exhibition Transform Any Room.

How do you create a home? Artists may craft one through paint and canvas, families construct theirs with hard work and love, while children often create theirs through the power of imagination. Come and play “house” at the Art Center during Entirely Kids Day. This free, fun day for friends and family is the perfect opportunity to spend time together creating lasting memories. Enjoy a day full of hands-on art making, kid-friendly entertainment, and museum exploration.

Event Schedule:

11:30 – 12 pm and 1:30 – 2 pm
