SPRING BREAK ACTIVITY FOR KIDS: DRAWING IN 3D AT THE NEON MUSEUM, THURSDAY, APRIL 2
In Las Vegas for Spring Break? Looking for a fun and enriching way to entertain the kids? On Thursday, April 2, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., the Neon Museum will host a family fun event titled, “Drawing History in 3D.” Children will learn how to draw their own 3D/anaglyph sign based on historic signs in the Neon Museum’s collection. In addition to drawing an anaglyph 3D sign, children will fabricate their own pair of 3D glasses with which to view their sign.
This event is one of several presented by the Neon Museum’s education department. All family events at the Neon Museum are designed to extend the museum’s impact on the community by offering opportunities for families to enjoy time together in a culturally important, historic and creatively inspiring setting.
This event costs $5 per person and is recommended for kindergartners through sixth graders accompanied by an adult. Space is limited. To make reservations, go to www.neonmuseum.org/happenings or call (702) 387-6366.
