Virtual Family Workshops
The Queens Museum offers weekly virtual Family Art Workshops on Saturday’s from 1:00 pm- 2:00 pm. Advance registration is necessary. Art Workshops will be based on seasonal Family Workshop guides that are linked below along with a schedule of art workshops. Family workshops will take place via zoom and all information will be emailed to families prior to the virtual Family Art Workshops.
These fun, educational workshops invite children ages 4 and up, and their adult companions to take part in a shared learning experience. Activities offer families the opportunity to reflect on the artworks presented in Museum exhibitions as they work collaboratively to create unique works of their own with a variety of different materials that can easily be found at home. The art projects are as wildly diverse as the Queens Museum’s dynamic permanent and changing exhibitions. From building abstract art sculptures to designing beautiful paintings, the artworks are created by adults and children together under the guidance of skilled and caring educators and a team of youth assistants from our Queens Teens program.
Alongside the art zoom workshops, families can access a virtual story time component that will be published every Sunday on the Queens Museum website. Children’s stories will be read by Queens Museum staff members, Queens Teens, and local Queens based authors.
Family Art Workshops accommodate diverse learners and are accessible to families with children with special needs and English Language Learners. For more information about Family Art Workshops at the Queens Museum and to RSVP please contact us at email@example.com. Please RSVP at least one day prior to the virtual workshop.
