Open Studio from Home:
Stuart Davis

SAT, Feb 20, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Stuart Davis painted bold, colorful scenes from cityscapes to still lifes. He created his own visual vocabulary inspired by the rhythms of the modern world and jazz music! Davis said, “Jazz music has always been very important to me, from the time I was a little boy… I would say that it’s been a continuous source of inspiration in my work, from the very beginning.”

Join us to learn about the life and art of Stuart Davis. Then, we will make our own colorful compositions inspired by music and sound!
