Family Workshops

Workshops provide the opportunity to explore artists’ thinking and studio practices. Taught by museum educators, each workshop includes a conversation in the galleries followed by a hands-on studio session. Family Workshops are designed for children (ages 8–11) and adults to participate in together. See the complete listing below for topics, dates, and times. All workshops begin in the Education Studio, located on the East Building Concourse. Workshops are free but preregistration is required.
