Picturing Place

For kids ages four to six and their adult companions

Saturday, October 20, 2012, 2:00–4:00 p.m.

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine

A special two-hour workshop for families. Kids and adults explore works in the collection and special exhibitions, then use their experience in the galleries as inspiration in art-making workshops.

Consider the choices artists make when they paint places that are important to them, then experiment with painting techniques and color mixing as you create a picture of your own special place.

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.

Sign up for one date and time per workshop. Sessions take place in the morning and afternoon on most dates.
