Children then create their own works of art to take home. Themed backpacks were created for specific age groups. Each backpack is available in Spanish. Pick up all backpack activity materials at the Emily Lowe Gallery during open hours year-round until 3 p.m. Return all backpacks by 4 p.m. and keep your completed works of art. All caper activities are FREE!
