Summer Studio: Murals inspired by Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925-1945 for kids ages 14–18

FRI, July 17, 2020
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

For 14–18 year olds

Join Whitney educators for free weekly online art classes this summer. Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials. 

Learn how Mexican muralists such as José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros influenced American artists like Jacob Lawrence and Jackson Pollock. These artists used their art to fight for social change. This week’s painting classes experiment with techniques used to make murals, and ask participants to consider what messages they want to communicate to the world.

See all Summer Studio events, including programs for kids, teens, and families.
