Join us on Saturday, February 29, at 3:00 PM, for Family Saturday: Life-Sized. After looking at several works in the exhibition FLEX, we will investigate ideas of strength and what forms strength can take. Using these ideas, we will create life size portraits illustrating what makes us feel strong and empowered!

Tween Family Saturdays are more focused towards kids ages 10 and older. However, children ages 5-9 are welcome to participate! Our Tween-focused Family Saturdays include looking at and discussing artwork where artists confront complex issues such as race, gender, class, identity, and bias. If you have any questions regarding the content of specific exhibitions, please ask us. We invite you to preview the exhibitions as well!

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most of the free programs run from 1:00 to 2:30 PM, unless otherwise specified, and are suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions.

All materials provided; be prepared to get messy and have fun. And dress accordingly! Reservations are required and may be made beginning one week in advance of each program. For additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.

The Tang welcome visitors of all abilities. Be prepared to get messy and have fun! Share your Family Saturday photos on social media by including #tangfamsat.
