At the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's Free First Sunday: Nature Inspires Us, families are invited to explore the artistic influence of nature through paintings, activities and films. "We're giving a sensory experience through looking at the works of art, getting a sense of what inspires these artists," says Tracy Truels, family programs coordinator at the MFAH. "There will be lots of hands-on things for kids to touch - to get families talking about what they're seeing and imagining theyre inside the works of art." The day brings gallery tours, artist demonstrations and the chance to pick up a brush, as well as nature-inspired music by The Fidelis Quartet. 1 to 4 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet.
