Live Virtual Art Week for Families + Kids | Day 5
On the fifth day of The Broad's virtual art-making week, Spring into The Broad, join artist Dewey Tafoya from Self Help Graphics & Art for an art-making activity inspired by Julie Mehretu’s painting Congress (2003) from the Broad collection.
Participants will compose a cityscape using various materials to create layers of colored texture, lines, and shapes.
During this free virtual workshop, a facilitator will show the artwork that inspired the activity, live from the museum, and participants will have the opportunity to share their creations with each other from home.
What you'll need to participate:
- Any size of paper or newspaper
- Colored pencils
- Scissors (optional)
For Ages 6 and Up
This art-making activity is suitable for children ages 6 and up. Younger children may benefit from the help of an adult.
Self Help Graphics & Art fosters the creation and advancement of new art works by Chicana/o and Latinx artists through experimental and innovative printmaking techniques and other visual art forms.
About Spring into The Broad: Virtual Art-Making Workshops
Each day of spring break from Monday, March 29 to Friday, April 2, 2021, The Broad will present a one-hour virtual workshop for families. Each workshop will be hosted by a different community organization, who will facilitate an art activity inspired by works on view at the museum.
In addition to the guided art activity, 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 workshop.
