Every last Saturday, enjoy a free family-friendly tour of the Museum’s collections with CAM Educators, specifically geared towards parents with young children. Each month, explore a small selection of artworks and objects through interactive storytelling and engagement.

This May, the family tour will start with Sculpting Self, a community art exhibition featuring sculptures by Walker Hancock (1901-1998) and nearly 300 eighth graders from Manchester-Essex Middle School, Rockport Middle School, and Gloucester’s O’Maley Middle School. From there, we’ll explore the Museum to find work by other sculptors including Paul Manship, George Demetrios, and Anna Hyatt Huntington. After the tour, families can try making their own sculpture in the CAM Studio!
