We will look at some images from our exhibition Africa Pop Studio, focusing on the brightly patterned fabric in clothing. Then we will create fabric patterns using stamps, making some of our own stamps out of vegetables!

(Note: Some of the images in *Africa Pop Studio may not be suitable for some children so we will be working from reproduced photos only, not touring the exhibition. Parents or other adult companions may view the exhibit while we are working on our crafts and may choose to take their children to see the artwork after the program.)*

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.
