Tang at Home Studio: Everyday Superheroes
The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College announces its spring online, family-centered art-making events series, Tang at Home Studio, which meets every other Saturday from February 27 to May 8.
Tang at Home Studio gives kids and their families the chance to explore their creativity, make new things, and share their artwork with peers. Each online session starts at 11 a.m. and includes a guided exploration of an artwork, information about the artist, and a hands-on art project led by Sunny Ra, The Laurie M. Tisch Educator for K-12 and Community Programs, with assistance from Skidmore College student interns.
You can register on the Monday before the Saturday session. Then you can explore, learn, and prepare materials. On the session Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., we will gather on Zoom to discuss our ideas about the artwork, engage in an art-making activity, and share our creations.
To ensure a fun sharing environment, registration is required. The live Saturday sessions are best suited for kids ages 5-12 and their adult companions, but everyone is welcome! For the best experience, we recommend logging in via computer instead of a mobile device, if possible. This will enhance each participant’s ability to view artwork and videos, and to engage in community conversations with one other.
May 8: Everyday Superheroes
After looking at the painting Superheroes by artist Katherine Bradford, on view in the exhibition Never Done: 100 Years of Women in Politics and Beyond, we will share our own ideas about superheroes, their outfits, and their powers. Who are the superheroes in your life? We will create our own squad of paper-based superheroes! Don’t forget to come dressed as your favorite superhero, or wear an outfit that makes you feel larger than life!
