Brrrr! It's so cold outside in January! Here's your chance to warm up with us at Wonderwild.
On Thursday, January 28, we're hosting Tom of Tom's Fun Band, from 5-7pm. General admission is only $5 a kid (free for adults, members, and kids under 9 months) if you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can pay $10 for walkers, $8 for pre-walkers at the door. Price includes general admission to the play area.
Tom was our main attraction at our grand opening Halloween party. An educator, licensed counselor, and a dad of twins, his usual musical performances specializes in science education. We're so glad to have him back for our January Jam!
Have you noticed the new art hanging in the "tunnel" leading to the play area at Wonderwild? Some people thought it was decorative strips of wall paper artfully cut into a collage, but no. It's a painting by fine artist Clarence Chun. He's Yale educated, but also graduated from the University of Houston's School of Art. With an MFA from New York's prestigious SVA, he's extremely well-rounded. Check out his work at Wonderwild closely the next time you are in. In the meantime, here's a taste of Clarence's other works and his artist statement below.
It's official! Our Ultimate Super Duper Hero parties are a hit! Girls and boys get to create a SUPER SILLY FACE cape which they keep as party favors. Others added stars, hearts or glittering gems on to their capes.
The birthday boy or girl also gets a very special cape to run around and save the day with!
Up up and away!!!
