Open Studio for Teens:
Self-Portraits Inspired by Jennifer Packer, Part 1

FRI, Nov 12, 2021
4 pm

Floor 3, Hearst Artspace

High school students, grades 9–12

Teens are invited to Open Studio for Teens, a free art-making program on select Fridays. Experiment, create, and learn techniques with art projects inspired by the Whitney’s exhibitions and collection.

This two-part series is inspired by Jennifer Packer’s intimate and politicized artwork of family and friends combined with traditional art historical practices. In this workshop, teens will learn how to paint intimate acrylic self-portraits for the span of two Open Studio for Teens sessions.

Teens must present proof of vaccination upon arrival at the Museum in accordance with New York City requirements. Face coverings are required at all times. 

Proof of vaccination may include a CDC Vaccination Card (or photo), NYC COVID Safe app, New York State Excelsior Pass, NYC Vaccination Record, or an official immunization record from outside New York City or the United States.
