Fairfield Museum staff are hard at work developing plans to move our award-winning exhibits and programs online so our community can continue to enjoy the Museum’s great offerings from home. You can look forward to fun, entertaining, and educational virtual activities, tours, and content!
The fun for all ages begins on Monday, March 23rd
Weekly Art Challenge: Creative Fun for Grades K-12 (and Adults, too!)
Tara Tomaselli, School Programs Manager and artist, will share a work of art from the Museum’s collection every Monday morning on Facebook. After examining the artwork, take on the challenge of creating your own work of art. She’ll offer questions and an “assignment” to complete each week which will include creating your masterpiece, snapping a photo and uploading to the Weekly Art Challenge Facebook Event. Each week, you can view everyone’s original creations inspired by our Museum’s collection!
Who’s This, What’s This?
The Fairfield Museum will post an image of an object or a photograph from our Museum’s collection to our Facebook and Instagram accounts – one that desperately needs your help! Can you help us identify who’s in the photograph, or what the object is?
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30am
