Members on the Road Waco

Let’s take a day off from city hustle and bustle and visit the historic homes of Waco, Texas. Join us as we step back in time into the houses, gardens and grounds of three historic properties in this peaceful city on the Brazos River that calls itself the heart of Texas. Built by affluent merchants and pioneer planters, these homes present distinct styles that give a broad view of mid to late-nineteenth-century art and design. We will examine paintings, architecture, furniture, and textile and costume on privately led tours of each property.

Lunch will be catered by Olive Branch Bakery & Café at McCulloch House. Fee: $150 per person includes transportation, lunch, and all tour fees and gratuities. To register for this day trip, contact Mary Lynn Sloane at 817.

Itty-Bitty Art: Little Artists

Young Toddler Program

Bring your young toddler (ages 12–24 months) to the Amon Carter for an art-filled experience! Engage with Lindsay Koss, early childhood teacher, as she leads an art-making session inspired by the museum’s collection.

Artistic exploration can begin with the tiniest of hands. The introduction of artistic mediums allows toddlers to discover action, colors, textures, and to express themselves. Crayons, foam sheets, markers, paper, stamps, texture boards and watercolors are a few toddler friendly supplies that stimulate creativity while developing fine motor skills and encourages cognitive development. Making art combines a sensory and emotional experience that fosters a passion for creative thinking and imagination!

Attendees may get messy—please dress accordingly!
