Seeds of Knowledge: Green Chemistry and Family Bath Fizzie Workshop

Sunday, October 15, 2023, 10–11:30 AM
$20; $15 for members; each ticket is valid for one child and one parent or caregiver.

Learn how to truly go green when you join our morning family program! Take a special tour of our Seeds of Knowledge: Early Modern Illustrated Herbals exhibition while the galleries are closed to the public.

Families will make their own mint bath fizzies using wild mint plants. They will learn more about how plants can be cultivated and used for medicines and beneficial products like bath salts and fizzies.

Gioya DeSouza-Fennelly, educator and chemist, will share how the historical uses of plants still inspire scientists today. Gioya’s education practice focuses on the lifecycle of everyday items and the virtues of reusing, recycling, and upcycling.

The Morgan’s family programs offer a unique and engaging museum experience to learn about the process of creative expression. Our innovative art workshops and gallery experiences are designed for adults and children to enjoy together. They are limited to families and caregivers with children.

Workshops may use special art materials and are intended only for the age range listed. All materials included.

Support for this exhibition is provided in part by the Rita Markus Fund for Exhibitions.

Appropriate for ages 7–14. Limited availability.
