Rubin Museum Family Sundays

  • Price band: 1/4

In honor of its 10th anniversary, the Rubin Museum of Art established new Family Sundays—a year-round, drop-in program inviting families to create art, explore the galleries on special tours and more. In July, peruse woodblock prints and craft a printed magnet, then search for animals in the exhibitions and make a mask in August. In September, discover the works of multimedia artist Francesco Clemente, then make your own watercolor wash using Himalayan pigments. Welcome the holiday of Diwali this October with traditional stories and themed crafts. In November, try your hand at Tibetan-style grid drawings using strict proportions and inspiration from the "All-Knowing Buddha" exhibition. Close out the year with a 'green' holiday card project using recycled and natural materials, like many Himalayan artists do. Ages 3 and up.
