Join us Saturday, March 13, at 11:00 AM, for Tang at Home Studio: Cut it Out! We’ll explore Nina Chanel Abney’s eye-catching work Whet, on view in the exhibition Never Done: 100 Years of Women in Politics and Beyond. Using spray paint and vinyl stencils, Abney explores race and identity through colors, figures, text, abstract imagery, and symbols taken from the internet, social media, and popular culture. We will create our own colorful collaged artworks that reflect our view of a world full of powerful, positive, and inclusive messages.

Hosted by Sunny Ra, The Laurie M. Tisch Educator for K-12 and Community Programs, and her team of Skidmore student interns, these sessions are geared toward children ages 5 to 12 accompanied by a parent or guardian. This hour-long live session will focus on exploring and sharing our thoughts about the artwork, learning more about the artist and then making our own inspired work! 

Tang at Home Studios are free, however, registration is required and space is limited. Register for this event starting Monday, March 8.
