FOUR FRIDAYS THIS SUMMER

June 2, July 7, August 4, September 1 - during Food Truck Fridays in Balboa Park starting at 5 PM

Free Summer Family Mural Project

In conjunction with Food Truck Fridays in Balboa Park is offered on the first Friday evening of each month June through September and gives families new and exciting ways to experience art. Facilitated by the Timken’s teaching artist, families will participate in painting a large mural in front of the museum and then head into the museum for an art treasure hunt.

Four different treasure hunt activities, which participants can take home, will be created for each Friday evening. Each treasure hunt will highlight different paintings in the museum prompting families to view all the masterpieces in the collection for clues as they track down specific details from the selected paintings. Everyone in the family can be an art detective and discover the wonders within masterpieces in the Timken.

The free, Family Mural Project starting at 5:00pm on four Friday evenings, will give families new and exciting ways to experience art. The themes for summer 2017 are as follows
