Make art a family affair – virtual!  

In this family-style program, children ages 5-12 and their accompanying grown-ups look at a work of art, share in an art discussion, and participate in a related art workshop led by a museum educator. This interactive program engages the entire family from the comfort and safety of home.

Georges Braque Still Life

From the Museum’s Collection, we will explore the painting Still Life on Red Tablecloth by Georges Braque. We will use interesting materials from home and the outdoors to assemble a still life. Then, we will draw  and use watercolors to paint it from different points of views and angles.

$3 Per Family / Members Free

Georges Braque (pronounced “brock”) was a French artist. Along with Pablo Picasso he developed an art movement called Cubism. One characteristic of Cubism is  that artists used shapes to show objects from different angles in one image.
