Hablemos de la Historia y del Arte
Bienvenidos! The New-York Historical Society invites Spanish-speaking families to explore New York history through gallery conversations and studio art projects. This once-a-month program is led by a Spanish-speaking art educator and brings children age four to ten and their grown-ups on a tour of the art and objects of the city’s past. In the studio, families create their own creative responses to the theme, using materials such as watercolors, pastels, mixed media, and photography.
