The Biggs’ open studio program offers younger visitors – and those young at heart – a space to imagine their own art projects and participate in self-led activities that relate to our collection and current exhibitions. The studio is filled with all the supplies needed for active play and family-friendly exhibits.
Read and Make Adventures
Join in on a Read and Make Adventure this summer at the Biggs and the Dover Public Library! This year you can join the Dover Public Library staff and the Biggs Education staff outside on the Biggs’ Lawn where you can listen to stories, music, and participate in an art talk and art-making activity based on that day’s stories!
