Bring the New Orleans Museum of Art into your home and get creative together through Virtual Studio KIDS! family art-making workshops. Join us for an all-hands-in live Zoom experience designed for young artists and their grown-ups to make together, guided by a teaching artist. Meet other families, practice close-looking with a NOMA artwork, and try out an art-making technique using materials you can find around the house.
Youth ages 5-10, accompanied by an adult (or the whole family), are encouraged to participate.
Cost: Pay-What-You-Can. A suggested donation of $10 is welcomed for participation. Pre-registration is required, as space is limited to 10 families per workshop.
