Through the generous grant funding from the Watertown Community Foundation, the Plumbing Museum is offering FREE art lessons to home schooled kids living in or around Watertown this fall. Classes will be taught by professional artists and alumni of the Manoog Family Artist-in-Residency program launched last year at the Plumbing Museum. The grant also supports music programming in partnership with the Eureka Ensemble and will bring a Musical Petting Zoo to our community. This program offers budding musicians a chance to try new and familiar instruments. Eureka Ensemble musicians will be on site to provide demonstrations, explanations, and answer any questions.

Two sessions of art and music activities will be offered in the fall of 2017.
