UMass Amherst

The Special Saturday Morning Series

Special Saturdays are interactive cultural enrichment programs for families with young children aged birth-6 years. On one Saturday morning of each month during the academic year, the Special Saturday Series features two free programs in the Student Union.

Art Cycles is an arts and crafts enrichment program for families with children age 2.5-6 years. A family-oriented performance for families with babies and children up to age six may include a performer using mime, music, dance, and/or storytelling to create educational experiences for the whole family.

All activities are free and include arts and crafts materials and pre-performance breakfast snacks.

This program is open to UMass and Amherst Family Center (AFC) families and their young children. As always, grandparents especially welcome!
