Join us Saturday, July 17, at either 1:00PM or 3:00PM for Family Saturday: Just Hangin’ Around, a multigenerational workshop for children 5 and older and their adult companions. Each session includes looking at artwork, discussing and sharing ideas, and engaging in a hands-on art activity inspired by those conversations.

We will explore artworks in Opener 33: Sarah Cain — Enter the Center and discuss how the artist uses a wide range of materials and how she layered them on canvas. Then we will gather materials ranging from yarn, fabric and specialty tapes to create our own abstract artworks that “hang out” like Sarah Cain’s!

Registration is required and is limited to five families for each workshop session. Due to small workshop groups, we are offering each session two times, from 1:00 to 2:30pm and from 3:00 to 4:30pm. Because children are unvaccinated, masks are required for all.

You can register beginning one week before each program. To register, call the Tang Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080. Be sure to include which session time you are signing up for.

We welcome visitors of all abilities! Be prepared to get messy and have fun!
