After School Art Club:
Susan Meiselas

WED, Mar 24, 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 Susan Meiselas, an award-winning Magnum photographer. Her new book, Eyes Open: 23 Photography Projects for Curious Kids (Aperture, 2021) presents fun projects that encourage kids to explore the world around them through photography. Meiselas says, “The camera can be a way of connecting to people and places while also expressing yourself.” Together we will take a look inside Eyes Open. Then we will explore photography as we respond to one of the prompts featured in the book!

This special After School Art Club is presented in collaboration with Aperture.
