Museum Kids: Blow Painting with Straws


Have you ever painted with your breath? Join us June 1st on the lawns of Macpherson House* to do just that. We’ll be painting a fun marsh scene using straws to direct our paint, maybe you’ll be inspired by the Napanee River flowing by, or feel free to improvise and go wherever your artist heart takes you; fireworks anyone?
