Join us on Saturday, February 22, at 1:00 PM, for Family Saturday: Rock Climbing Landscape. After looking at several scholars’ rocks and the wonderfully congested landscape of artist Yun-Fei Ji in the exhibition, Between the Mountains, we will think about the natural world and our impact on the environment. Then we will create our own 3-D worlds using materials such as watercolor paint, rocks, model magic, and paper.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most of the free programs run from 1:00 to 2:30 PM, unless otherwise specified, and are suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions.

All materials provided; be prepared to get messy and have fun. And dress accordingly! Reservations are required and may be made beginning one week in advance of each program. For additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.

The Tang welcome visitors of all abilities. Be prepared to get messy and have fun! Share your Family Saturday photos on social media by including #tangfamsat.
