Out and About: CFAMily Day at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum was Fun for the Whole Family #cfamrollins

CFAMily Day at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum

On Friday, June 20, we were invited to the CFAMily Day event at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum (CFAM) on the Rollins College campus.

This was the first time that we had been there, and other than a short time being lost, we found it. I blame me for that, not them. If I had paid closer attention to the signs, we would have found it quicker.

During the event, which was free to everyone, the kids drew faces, went on a scavenger hunt, and helped to create a mural of their body outlines (which they painted in). They even made handprint art inspired by Andy Warhol.
