Join HCCC during Spring Break week for hands-on making and other activities that encourage visitors ages three and up to explore craft and art making!

Although we are normally closed on Mondays, HCCC will be open all week for this event.

Each day of the week, from 10 AM – 1 PM, participants can experiment with different materials, tools, and techniques through hands-on activities demonstrated by teaching artists and volunteers. Families are also invited to spend time in the galleries sketching, looking at art, and talking with experienced docents. Visitors can explore the current exhibitions, THIS SIDE UP and Fiber in 3D, as well as our resident artist studios, to gain insight into the inspirations and artistic processes of working artists.  HCCC Spring Break is free and open to the public.
