Join us Saturday, July 24, at either 1:00PM or 3:00PM for Family Saturday: You’ve Got Mail, 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 take a look at the postcards in the exhibition Ellsworth Kelly: Postcards, and see how Kelly created these collaged works and how they influenced his abstract paintings, sculptures, and prints. Afterward, we will create our own collages postcards that we can post to a friend with a special message.

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!
