Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Julie Mehretu makes large-scale artworks that are built up through layers of paint, pencil, pen, and ink. She takes her visual vocabulary from maps, urban planning grids, and architectural forms. These are combined to make dynamic works that blur the line between abstraction and figuration.

Together, we will gather unique materials from around our homes. Then, we will create our own layered compositions!

Materials:

Clear plastic wrap, sheets of tracing paper, or clear acetate

Sharpie markers 

Masking tape

Optional:

Acrylic paint

Nail polish

Free with registration.
