Artist Mary Gaynier will help visitors discover the art of paper cutting during the Visiting Artist series at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) Family Center Friday, Feb. 28, at 6 p.m. Gaynier will teach attendees to create paper-cut snowflakes during the evening event.

The free recurring activity, held the last Friday of each month, offers families the opportunity to hear directly from local artists and musicians.

The Visiting Artist series provides an opportunity for both children and their adult caregivers to see the importance of art at a young age and how they can nurture their artistic talent.

The Family Center is a free drop-in, hands-on art studio and play space for families with young children. Families work together to create art using a wide variety of media. The Family Center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Fridays from 3:30 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The Family Center is supported in part by Mercy Health, The Andersons and the TMA Ambassadors.
