Join us on Saturday, March 7, at 1:00 PM, for Family Saturday: Beach Day. We will take a closer look at works by Mary Weatherford where the artist incorporates objects such as starfish and seashells to her canvases. Why would an artist add such natural objects into a painting? After thinking of the possibilities of what makes a painting, we will create our own mixed media paintings using similar natural objects in the spirit of Mary Weatherford.

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.
