MassMu’s October Do the Mu
Enjoy a free, family-friendly activity led by art instructor Diane Boslett during Do the Mu at the Massillon Museum on Saturday, October 1. Visit the Museum between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. to create your own superhero puppet using a sock and other materials. All supplies will be provided.
Boslett is a licensed visual arts teacher with a bachelor of arts degree from Ashland College and a master of education in integrated arts from the University of Rio Grande.
