Virtual Family Day: Cycles of Care

Free For Families


RSVP for pre-show reminders.

About the event

The way you make something can be just as important as the thing you make. Learn from artists about how they take care of themselves and their communities through the materials and processes they use to make their art. How can what we do today help the future be healthier and kinder for everyone?

Virtual Family Days feature special artist-created activities for all ages and are presented from 10 am to noon the second Saturday of each month this fall. Activities are led by MCA teaching artists and occasional guest artists from around Chicago.

RSVP to participate in live Virtual Family Day activities on Zoom or watch the event stream on Facebook Live. Family Day is always free for kids and anyone they call family.

Subscribe to our monthly Family Newsletter to receive additional updates about Family Days along with additional learning activities for kids and their families to do at home!


Support for Family Programs is provided in part by the MCA Women's Board Family Education Initiative.
