TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - This summer, the Tyler Museum of Art is holding “Off the Walls” pop-up events and activities for children with Tuesday’s kickoff event taking place at the museum itself.

The events have educational crafts and activities, though this year’s event is unique as it is the first event series taking place in multiple locations to encourage engagement with the community.

“We would take art activities across the Tyler community and have different kinds of individuals be able to learn about art and learn about how they can be able to access the museum and access our exhibitions,” said Rachel Anthony, Education Coordinator at Tyler Museum of Art.

Anthony said it is great to have an opportunity to interact and guide the children at these events.

“It’s so much fun to see a kid come in and see all kinds of markers, and all kinds of coloring pencils, and just see them just glow with just what they can be able to build and create,” Anthony said.

There is one more event to go. The last event will be at at Downtown Tyler on the Square from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, July 8.
