GAINESVILLE, Fla.β€” Families will have the opportunity to admire the landscapes in “Printmaking in the Age of Rembrandt” and celebrate Earth Day at the Harn Museum of Art during Family Day from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

For Family Day, participants will take a guided tour of the Rembrandt exhibit.

Adults may participate in β€œLearn to Make Arrangements from Foliage in your Yard,” a class offered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants will learn techniques and design their own foliage arrangement to take home. There is limited seating and registration is required. Class fee is $18 per person and includes a container and greenery. To register or for more information call 392-9826, ext. 2112.
