In keeping with the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery’s mission to foster interdisciplinary thinking and studying, to invite active and collaborative learning and to awaken the community to the richness and diversity of the human experience through the medium of art, we offer a series of family and adult programs.
More than 30 Family Saturday programs are offered each year in the fall, spring, and summer. These programs are designed to foster multi-generational creative cooperation. Each week we spend a little time in the galleries, focusing on a particular aspect of the exhibition. Just as with our school programs, we conduct discussions that allow the participants to find their own meaning in the artwork, rather than lecturing about it. We then spend an hour or more engaged in a hands-on art activity related to the artwork we have just seen. Children, parents, grandparents, and other adult companions all work on the same type of project, collaborating or working side-by-side on their own projects, proving over and over again that people of all ages have all the creativity they need to have a delightful time while making something extraordinary.
