The December Family Program theme is Your Voice Matters! Join us for a very special Family Program with the author of Colorfully Courageous Clyfford Still. Written by Jason Gruhl and illustrated by Jonathan Saiz, the book, for ages 8-12, goes beyond biographical information, venturing into the artist’s emotional world: his motivations, challenges, and discoveries. The storytime event will include a reading by Gruhl, followed by Q&A. After the reading, get ready to explore, get creative, and share out upstairs in The Making Space! Visitors of all ages are welcome!

Registration is not required. Family programs are included with Museum admission.

  • 10:30-11 a.m. Reading by Jason Gruhl and Q&A in The Making Space
