Family Fun

The Family Fun Workshops are held the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10 am-12 pm. The workshop is free but pre-registration is required. You can call (812) 944-7336 to register or send an email to the address below. It is a drop-in workshop, so people come and go from 10am until about 12pm. We do ask everyone to arrive no later than 11:30am. Registration is limited to 60 children and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Projects generally relate to an upcoming holiday or an exhibit on display at the Carnegie Center. Suggested ages are 2-12, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
