Monthly Inspiration

Each month features a different theme and the projects are always changing! Here is a quick list to get you inspired about the months ahead!

January: Winter Warm-Up!

Try your hand at fabric design, and make colorful, artful patches that will be added to quilts for families of Penfield Children’s Center. Once the quilts are completed, Kohl’s Color Wheels will deliver them to Penfield and provide the children and their families with a hands-on art-making experience of their own!

Every Saturday and Sunday in January, kids 12 and under get one free 8 oz. cup of hot cocoa (and marshmallows!) from The Coffee Shop.

February: Wearable Art

Celebrate the Museum’s feature exhibition Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair by exploring how clothing can be a work of art! Learn to fold, fringe, ruffle, and pleat artistic accessories to fashion your own fabric masterpiece. In the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, dive into decorative details while making a wearable heart-shaped gift for someone you love.
