Drawing from the Body

For kids ages seven to nine and their adult companions

Saturday, November 17, 2012, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 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.

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.

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