A side profile portrait of a Black woman in black and white. She is posing against a white backdrop and in a seated posture. One hand is on her hip and the other is on her thigh, both clearly displaying a collection of bangles and rings. She is wearing black pants, a sleeveless top, a chain necklace and dangle earrings. Her hair is worn in a close cut shave. On her right bicep is a black panther tattoo.

The Queens Museum invites children 5-12 and their adult companions to explore different works on view each week through a variety of fun hands-on art making activities. Children with special needs welcome, adaptations available. No fee or advance registration required. Just show up and stay for as long as you like. Location of the workshop is Unisphere Gallery (second floor) and/or various locations throughout the museum, please check at the admissions desk.

This week we will look to The Black Panthers: Portraits from an Unfinished Revolution exhibition located on the second floor, for inspiration.  We will draw and paint portraits that shine a spotlight on those who inspire us.

El Museo de Queens invita a niños de entre 5 y 12 años, acompañados de un adulto, cada semana a un taller de arte para explorar nuestras exhibiciones y obras de arte a través de manualidades artisticos. El taller es gratuito y no require registro previo, sólo vengan y disfruten de la actividad. Niños con necesidades especiales son bienvenidos. El taller se imparte en la galería Unisphere y en otras lugares del museo. Para mayor información consulte en la recepción de museo.

En este taller vamos a dibujar y pintar retratos de personas que nos inspiran en conexión con la exhibición de The Black Panthers: Portraits from an Unfinished Revolution (Las Panteras Negras, Retratos de una revolución inconclusa) en exhibición ahora en nuestra galería Partnership en el segundo piso.
