02/12 Kid's Art Workshop

Dear Parents & Young Artists,

This Saturday, we will venture into The Fields with the mission to build our own snow cave. Using fresh snow, make-shift tools, and found objects, we will construct a fabulous fort complete with a flag that we will design together. Once settled inside our cave, we will read "The Jumblies" by Edward Leary with pen and ink drawings by Edward Gorey. 
Back in the studio, we will take a look at the sculptures of Swiss artist, Alberto Giacometti, who is best known for his very tall, very thin bronze figures. Using wire and tin foil, children will replicate Giacometti's style while adding an abstract twist. We will BEND, MOLD, and SHAPE the soft metals to make inventive, free-standing sculptures.

Date: Saturday, February 12th
Time: 10am-12pm
Location: Visitors Center at The Fields Sculpture Park  
Cost: $12/child (bring a friend or sibling - $20 for two)

02/05 Kid's Art Workshop

This Saturday, we will take a snowy walk through the woods to visit Mary Ann Unger's bonded iron sculpture, Untitled (Misericordia), 1990. Her sculptures remind us of "hot dogs talking to each other" and "rotten bananas", but what was the artist herself thinking when she designed this and other free standing metal works? Get the inside scoop!

Back in the studio, we will navigate MOMA's interactive website for kids, "Destination Modern Art", where we will follow a little alien through the museum's contemporary art  collection. Choosing our own adventure, we will stop along the way to LISTEN, WATCH, CREATE, and LEARN about ARTISTS, PROCESS, IDEAS and MEDIA. Children will participate by making drawings, poems, maps and more. Join us for this intergalactic mission to MOMA and P.S.1 without leaving the comfort of Omi!
