Event Series Event Series (See All)

Free. No registration required.

The Icon Museum and Study Center is excited to offer free admission and family-friendly programs on Thursdays during school vacation. Get ready to explore the Museum’s collections, spark creativity, and discover a welcoming learning environment for all ages! Join us for activities in the galleries, auditorium, or outside on the terrace (if the weather is nice).

Guided Tour: What materials were used to create the vivid and long-lasting colors seen in the icons? Why do artists choose certain colors, and what do they make us feel?

Drop-in Activity: Learn about the symbolic meaning of color in art and use crayons, colored pencils, and paint to create your own work of art that tells a story or shows a feeling using colors.


This program is supported by grants from the Mass Cultural Council and the Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area.
