Family Fun Art Workshop: Communicating Character

For families with kids ages 6–10

Edward Steichen once said, “photography records the gamut of feelings on the human face.” Families will visit Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s: A Recent Acquisition and American Legends: From Calder to O’Keeffe to compare how Steichen and artists such as Alice Neel and Jacob Lawrence express a person’s character in different ways. Participants will then create their own portraits.
