Explore works in MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions, then use your experience in the galleries as inspiration during art-making activities in the studio.

Examine how artists represent the human form, exaggerating, isolating, and combining parts of the body. Then experiment with similar techniques to create your own mixed-medium work in the studio.

Admission is free. Preregistration is required.

Ages vary by workshop. Only kids of the ages listed will be permitted to attend. Kids and adults participate.

Registration takes place online ten days before the first session of each program.
