We will look at Grace DeGennaro’s paintings in our exhibition Sixfold Symmetry: Pattern in Art and Science, in which she makes patterns of dots. We will then create dot paintings using Q-tips as our paintbrushes for watercolor patterns.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 - 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
