Eckford Street Studio is hosting a series of FREE family art classes, offered in conjunction with Ziemia, on four consecutive Sundays from 3pm-5pm, beginning March 12th. Participants will work as families to create art inspired by concepts essential to Ziemia: individual and collective identity, stories and memory, and the earth we all live on.
Each week will focus on a different project and concept. Families will spend time discussing the theme of the week among themselves and with the larger group, then create art based on the conversations. Participants are encouraged to attend all four workshops, but are welcome to attend as many or few as they wish. The workshops are open to families with children age 7 and older.
Second Session theme: What Surrounds Us: Land and Nature
Families sketch "plein air" in McGolrick Park, make watercolor paint using soil from the park, and collect materials for future projects.
