Online, via Zoom
For kids ages 5–10
Welcome to After School Art Club, a free weekly online program with Whitney educators! Kids ages 5 to 10 are invited to experiment and make art with at-home art materials. Tell a friend and join the club!
This week’s activity is inspired by Charles Henry Alston. We will learn how Alston created this family portrait by scraping the surface of the paint with a palette knife—a tool with a blunt steel blade that artists often use for mixing or applying paint. Then we will create colorful scratch boards and make bold scratch art family portraits!
- Thick paper or card stock
- Crayons or oil pastels
- Dish soap
