After School Art Club:
Madeline Hollander

Wed, May 12, 2021
4–5 pm

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 Madeline Hollander. In her video installation, Flatwing, Hollander explores the emergence of silent crickets in Kauai, Hawaii, as populations of chirping crickets decrease due to climate change. Together, we will think about places where natural conditions might make it difficult to live—like the moon or deep ocean. Then we will create our own design adaptations that would allow us to travel to these new realms!
