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 Sari Dienes. We will learn how Dienes embraced the streets of downtown Manhattan as her studio, creating rubbings of subway grates, pavement cracks, and maintenance hole covers. Then we will examine the various surfaces that exist in our surroundings—like the woven fibers of a blanket or the delicate leaves of a house plant—and create a composition of rubbings from the textures in our homes!
- Thin paper like printer paper or tracing paper
- Thick paper like cardstock or watercolor paper
