Summer Art School: Live Virtual Drawing Sessions for Kids


In July, families with kids are invited for four live one-hour virtual drawing sessions. Facilitated by The Broad’s Visitor Experience Lead David Candelaria, participants will create a drawing inspired by works on view in the museum, while learning words used in contemporary art.  

During the drawing session, librarians from the Children’s Literature Department from the Los Angeles Public Library will share and discuss books related to the activity's theme.

Each workshop includes a live in-gallery segment showcasing the artwork that inspired the activity. Families will have time to share their creations at the end of the session.

All sessions are free to attend and held over Zoom.

Sessions will be translated live into Spanish.

For ADA accommodations, please email at least 72 hours prior to the event.
