The University of Wyoming Art Museum will host Family Saturday Workshop Sept. 9 from 10 a.m.-noon.

Family Saturday Workshop is an open studio, maker space-inspired workshop. It will be led by the Art Museum’s trained teaching artists and educators to help families explore artistic materials and concepts inspired by museum exhibitions. The workshop is free for families and individuals of all ages.

September’s workshop will focus on “YIM Maline: Decomposition, 2016.” Participants will explore museum exhibitions, looking for how artists use and recycle materials to make art and share ideas. In the studio, families will have access to a variety of new and recycled materials and are encouraged to build art together.

For more information, call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622, visit the website at, or follow the museum on Facebook.

Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
