Join us on August 18 for Family Saturday: Papel Picado. We will visit the exhibition Give a damn. and talk about Daniel Gonzalez’s Artes es Vida, 2013, how it is made, and the Mexican folk art tradition of “papel picado,” or cut paper. Then we will make our own papel picado creations with construction paper and tissue paper!

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required and can be made starting one week before the program. For more information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
