On Monday, September 24, the Museum of Modern Art launches MoMA Studio: Common Senses, an eight-week-long series of ongoing, drop-in workshops offered in conjunction with the museum's exhibition "Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000." Visitors of all ages are invited to take part in a variety of multisensory games, art making and educational experiences aimed at fostering our relationships with nature, technology and our surroundings. Artists, designers and educators will guide attendees through the likes of rug weaving, harvesting an edible garden, creating light-based scapes and expressing oneself narratively with blocks, among other ultracreative endeavors. Several workshops, such as Blocks Tell a Story, are scheduled and require tickets, available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Cullman Desk beginning at noon on the day of the program; visit the website for details. Children must be accompanied by a parent, and all workshops are free, provided families enter via the 54th Street Education and Research Building entrance (4 W 54th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves). MoMA Studio: Common Senses workshops run Sept 24--Nov 19; Mon, Wed--Sun noon--4pm at the Museum of Modern Art.
