Join us Saturday, July 31, at either 1:00PM or 3:00PM for Family Saturday: What’s in a picture?, 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.

If you could style and curate your family portrait, what choices would you make? After looking at and discussing the stunning portraits by Malian artists Seydou Keïta on view in the exhibition Next to You and by Malick Sidibé from our collections, we will create our own portraits based on how we want to tell our stories through different kinds of art materials.

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!
