Art at Home!

LAM+LAB at Laguna Art Museum is a space for exploration and play. Now you can bring LAM+LAB home with these art activities designed for all ages. As we tell students who visit us at the museum: There are no rules. You are the artist. Be inspired by the art from Laguna Art Museum’s exhibitions, but please make it your own and let your imagination lead you in unexpected directions.

When you are finished creating each piece of art, post a picture of it on Instagram. Follow @lagunaartmuseum and use the hashtag #LAMLabAtHome to see your work featured in our Instastories!
