Family Art Day

ArtSpan, Shipyard Trust for the Arts, YMCA Urban Services, and the YES Project are proud to present a full day of fun art activities, workshops, and performances for kids and families during the SF Open Studios event at Hunters Point Shipyard!

Activities during the day will include:

                  Art making activities and demonstrations

                  Scavenger hunts

                  Tours of artist studios for kids


                  And much more!

This year we are extremely excited to work with the Youth Educational Spacecraft Project (YES) who will be onsite with their mobile spaceship classroom! The YES classrom is a large, collaborative, creative public art sculpture covered in lunar mosaics deigned by children in the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood, drawing attention everywhere it "lands".

Family Art Day is focused on the importance of art in community building and creating connections between the public and artists at the Shipyard. Watch the video of last year's event to learn more. Attendance is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
