Family Fun: Making Portraits!

SAT, May 21, 2016
2:30–4:30 pm

Floor Three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, Hearst Artspace

Families create hands-on art projects inspired by discussion and activities in the galleries. This month, visit the exhibitions Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection and June Leaf: Thought Is Infinite. We will explore how artists use materials in experimental ways to represent people.

This program has been developed specifically for kids ages 6 to 10. Siblings are welcome to join the group but must have a ticket.

Tickets are required; every adult and child must reserve a ticket to attend this program. Members: please log-in to view and reserve discounted tickets.

$10 per child, plus Museum admission ($22 adults; $18 seniors. Museum admission is free for members and children under 18). Families are encouraged to sign up for one tour a month. Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged. If you have any questions about which tour is most appropriate for your family, please email familyprograms@whitney.org before purchasing your tickets.

The Hearst Artspace and the Seminar Room are equipped with induction hearing loops and infrared assistive listening systems. Accessible seating is also available.
