11:00 AM – 03:00 PM


In June, join HCCC to create a personal piñata inspired by the summer exhibition, Justin Favela:  All You Can EatExplore the works on view, and check out the variety of shapes and colors Favela uses in his giant, whimsical sculptures. Then, experiment with texture and color as you add layers of bright tissue paper to your own sculpture. What will your piñata celebrate?

Note: Please allow 25 minutes to complete this activity. The activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM to participate in a 15 – 20-minute activity. Materials are provided.
