Aug 14, 2021 - Two sessions of the 90-minute program start at 1:00PM and 3:00PM.
Location: Payne Room
Free and open to the public
Join us Saturday, August 14, at either 1:00PM or 3:00PM for Family Saturday: Jazz It Up!, 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.
This week, we will explore Ouattara Watts’ Wait Until Tomorrow and jazz musician Sun Ra’s album covers. Both artists push the boundaries of art in their own mediums, creating imaginary, symbolic and magical experiences. Let’s explore their worlds together and improvise our own artworks that use symbols, rhythm, lines, shapes, color, and sound as starting points of inspiration.
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!
