Online Family Program: Ryman Auditorium Stained Glass Window Sensory Play

Jun 03, 202003:30 PM - 04:15 PM

Join a museum educator on FieldTripZoom to learn all about Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and its importance to country music history. Inspired by the Ryman’s famous stained glass windows, design stained glass windows of your own. Use shaving cream and food coloring to create beautiful, washable painted windows right at home. First, create marbled stained glass paper to hang in a window. Next, learn how to safely and temporarily paint your windows to turn your home into the Ryman. Get ready for sensational sensory play. Recommended for ages four to ten with guardian, but all are welcome. Guardian is required to be present for children under thirteen.



Takes place via FieldTripZoom, no download required. Space is limited. Registration required. Free.

  • White paper (We will be using cardstock and parchment paper to show different effects, but many kinds of paper will work.)

  • Ruler or similar object to scrape off shaving cream
