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.


Studio KIDS! Fall-Winter Series | Saturdays, 10-11 am

October 17 | November 21 | December 19 | January 16

This season’s series draws inspiration from NOMA’s special exhibition  Mending the Sky, a body of contemporary work by both locally and internationally based artists exploring processes of mending, repairing, and healing a world turned upside down. Mending the Sky will be on view October 9, 2020 through January 31, 2020.

December 19 | A Moment in Time  SOLD OUT

Get inspired by artist Ana Hernández and create a piece based on a memory from a sound, song or dream using markers, collage, and found objects. 

January 16 | Bodies & Beings SOLD OUT

Take a look at a work by artist Firelei Báez and learn about the ciguapa, a figure from Dominican folklore. We’ll pose like the ciguapa & get inspired to create our own fictional beings!
