Families with school age children are invited to discover the stories of Cape Ann veterans in the special exhibition, WWII Veterans: Portrait Photographs by Jason Grow. In the Activity Center, kids can sketch a self portrait like Union soldier and artist Addison Center, create a card for our troops today, and listen to a story provided by Cape Ann Veterans Services, Heroes in Our Neighborhood by Valerie Pfundstein.

Tabletop Activities:

  • Make a thank you card for the military via Cape Ann Veteran’s Services.
  • Explore Jason Grow’s portraits of Veterans then draw your own self portrait  in pastel or colored pencil.
  • Using wallpaper, make a personalized sketchbook like those used by Stuart Davis.
  • Use cut paper to create a granite study.


The second Saturday of every month is free for families with school-aged children from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Families are invited to the Activity Center to participate in hands-on activities that delve into the art, history and culture of the region. Each Second Saturday focuses on a specific theme based on the Museum’s collection and/or special exhibitions. These programs are free and open to the public and are generously sponsored by David and Lisa Rich.
