We went to a couple of places this afternoon. First we stopped by the Mesa Arts Center to take a look around the Mesa Contemporary Arts space. After that quick stop we made our way over to the Arizona Museum for Youth where we spent over three hours looking around, playing, and of course making art!
Before entering the galleries at the Mesa Contemporary Arts space I had a talk with my kids about what we can and can’t do at a place like this. Mostly it was a bunch of can’ts with one can- you can look. haha
There’s a small courtyard just outside that the kids wanted to see. There were a lot of stairs and a fountain. If it hadn’t been so blazing hot we would’ve spent more time out there but ten minutes was more than enough.
After over two hours I finally managed to drag all the kids away to the other area in the museum… it was kind of like an art themed play place, my kids were pretty darn excited! I didn’t take many pictures because I was busy playing with them!
