Kids Art Smash with Jac Lahav

Saturday, April 6 - 10:30 AM

UPDATE: This event is now SOLD OUT. Email us at if you’d like to be added to the wait list for this date. We will be hosting another Art Smash on April 13, 11AM, if you can join us then. Click HERE to register for that event.


One of the paintings in Jac’s exhibition is secretly a sleeper artwork filled with candy inside! Jac will ask kids to smash open the artwork – in the tradition of piñata, pignata, and general artwork iconoclasm – turning our traditional notion of art appreciation on its head. This activity will occur promptly at 11AM, so don’t be late!


Beginning at 10:30AM we’ll have some fun hands-on art activities for kids and parents: guests can complete original coloring pages designed by Jac, or they can choose from our craft supplies to custom-create decorative and wearable vines similar to the ones featured in the exhibition.


You'll also find representatives from the Community Attention Foster Families (CAFF) ready to share valuable information on-site! Learn about the rewarding journey of becoming a foster parent straight from the experts. The CAFF representatives will shed light on various local opportunities for fostering and assisting fostering families, thus helping you to understand how you can make a significant difference in a child's life right in your community.


Pre-registration to “smash” the artwork is required with a limited capacity. This activity is only open to children ages 2 - 8. Register HERE!


This event is held in connection with the exhibition, Foster Paintings, on view in the Main Gallery at Second Street Gallery April 5 - May 24, 2024.
