New programs at the Children’s Museum combine science, arts and hands-on fun

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 10.54.46 AMWhether today's students go on to be artists, doctors or politicians, we know that the challenges their generation faces will demand creative solutions. To help kids explore their creative sides, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum is introducing a new series of programs that combine science, art and lots of hands-on fun!

The programs, which will kick off in November, will feature the talents of local artist, Becky Hochhalter. Hochhalter is a self-taught, lifelong artist who has been creating art since childhood. Her works cover a variety of artistic mediums, including digital drawing, painting and illustration, traditional oil and acrylic painting and fine detailed pencil drawings, photography and faux finishes.

Hochhalter and the Museum are coming together to offer “Creative Factory” events and “WeeArt Workshops,” which will be offered at a variety of times for different age groups.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 11.02.18 AMDuring all of the workshops, kids will experience fun, hands-on science based experimentation and exploration while also creating cool works of art that they get to take home and enjoy! Snacks will be provided for participants. For the WeeArt Workshops, parent participation is required. Creative Factory events do not require parent participation, but parents are welcome to stay and participate alongside their children.

“We’re very passionate about STEM education and its importance, but we also see that arts education can play a critical role in growing capable scientists, app developers and statisticians,” said Lynn Hughes, executive director of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. “Arts education fosters creativity, and that creativity is essential to innovation. It’s going to be exciting to watch that creative energy integrated with science lessons here at the Museum.”
