WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — From Monday, April 15 through Friday, April 19, the Clark Art Institute offers children and families fun activities and opportunities to see great art as part of April School Vacation Week. 
Visitors can pick up a set of Looking Carefully Cards, drawing pads, and complimentary colored pencils at the Clark Center Admissions desk to use while exploring the galleries and the grounds. Museumgoers are also encouraged to stop by the Clark's postcard station on the lower level of the Museum Building. Create a unique postcard to send to a friend, drop it in the Clark's post box, and the Clark will stamp and mail it.
Special April School Vacation Week activities are offered on April 17 and April 19.
Sprouting with Seeds Art-Making Workshop: April 17, 1–3 pm
Celebrate spring and the quickly approaching Earth Day by joining Clark educators for an art-making activity using indigenous pollinator seeds. Take care of our Berkshire bees by planting flowers and grasses that support a resilient ecosystem and have fun with family and friends. Recommended for ages 5 and older.
This program is supported by Allen & Company.
Earth Walk with Dogs: April 19, 10 am
Celebrate nature by going on a walk with dogs from Berkshire Humane Society. Three walks through the Clark's trails are offered, ranging in difficulty.
Advance registration encouraged; capacity is limited.
Presented in collaboration with the Berkshire Humane Society.
Print Room Pop-Up: Dogs and Nature: April 19, 11 am–1 pm
Inspired by the morning's Earth Walk with Dogs, enjoy a special display of works on paper in the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper showcasing landscapes and nature scenes, as well as the timelessness of dogs as an artistic subject throughout the centuries.
On view during April School Vacation Week is "Paper Cities," which examines representations of cities in works on paper created from the late fifteenth to the early twentieth century. 
Visitors can also view the fifth installment of Clark's public spaces series, featuring works by artist David-Jeremiah in the Clark Center and Manton Research Center. The installation, free and open to the public, represents an overview of and conclusion to the artist's cycle of large circular reliefs, or tondos, collectively titled I Drive Thee.
All April School Vacation Week activities are free. Admission is always free for students of all ages (with a valid student ID) and anyone aged 21 and under.
