Open Studio for Teens:
Charles Henry Alston

FRI, May 21, 2021
4 pm

Online, via Zoom

High school students, grades 9–12

Join us for virtual Open Studio for Teens workshops! Teens are invited to a free artmaking program on Zoom with Whitney educators. Each week, participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art projects inspired by the Whitney’s exhibitions and collection. 

Inspired by the flat geometric style of painting found in Charles Henry Alston's work, teens will be challenged to create an artwork based on a group photo using magazine cut-outs and/or colorful paper.

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
