A staple here in Beaumont, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas will once again host their quarterly Free Family Arts Day. This month's "Who's That in the Mirror" Family Arts Day encourages kids to create silhouette drawings, aging portraits, full-body portraits and collage portraits after viewing the dynamic works of self-portraiture by Texas artists and the artwork from AMSET's permanent collection. In addition, the event will feature a celebration of Valentine's Day, President's Day and Mardi Gras. Festive activities will include decorating Valentine's Day cookies and making Lincoln beards, Freedom hats and Mardi Gras masks. As an added bonus, children are invited to smile, and say cheese as they visit the photo booth!
