Join us on the second Saturday of every month for engaging family-oriented programming designed to inspire young minds and satisfy the curiosity of every member of the family.  Each Second Saturday is uniquely curated based on a theme, and includes a variety of activities geared for ages 3-10, and their parents. 

Second Saturday begins at 10:30 am on the second Saturday of each month.  


Each Second Saturday activity is free with paid Museum admission. Museum members and youth under 18 are always free to visit the Museum. Please consider becoming a member of the Museum to receive this and many other benefits!


Second Saturday is generously supported by the Hartfield Foundation.


Second Saturdays

10:30 am     Newport Art Museum (76 Bellevue Avenue)

Find Your Rhythm and Make Some Noise! 

Back by popular demand, Miss Katie Fairhead will lead you on an exploration of rhythmic sounds and patterns through music and movement! Take a trek through the galleries on a Guided close looking tour and hunt for patterns. What would a low drum beat look like if you could see it? What about the whooshing of the wind? Using a variety of materials, make your own instrument, while learning the fundamentals of percussive sounds and beats. Can you make a sound you "saw" in one of the artworks in the gallery?  Take your special instrument home and keep the music going!

The Second Saturday program begins at 10:30 am, and is free with paid Museum admission.
(Admission for Adults is $15, and for Seniors and Active Military is $10. Admission for youth to age 18 and Museum Members is always free.)
