celebrating creativity and community
What is Mass Creativity?
Mass Creativity is a series of outreach workshops designed to inspire imagination and creativity, and make hands-on art-making accessible to those that might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience it. Each year the Mass Creativity program consists of complimentary workshops in diverse communities in San Diego that take place throughout April-June and culminate in a free all-day event at the Museum.
Mass Creativity Day 2018 took place on Saturday, June 23 from 10am-3pm.
