Create and cafe
Art Box Miami is celebrating mommies at Peacock Garden Cafe with a complimentary creative workshop. Kids can craft a special gift for mom, while adults enjoy brunch on the terrace.

"We're putting together a special edition newspaper for mothers," according to Art Box cofounder, Sofia Del Rivero. The adorable after-school program opened its doors about about a week ago at Mayfair in the Grove, and the curriculum they offer teaches rugrats about classical and contemporary art through games, sculpting, drawing, painting, installations, and more.

Preview Art Box's engaging activities at Peacock from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 2889 McFarlane Rd., Coconut Grove; email
