Sundays, March 3, 10, April 21, May 19, 1pm

Calling all budding magicians! Celebrity magician Matt Wayne breaks down one trick per session—from the history to the techniques. Tricks range from card-based to sleight of hand. After learning about the history of the trick and seeing historical footage of magicians’ performances, kids will get hands-on practice and guidance during the class, and will take home materials to continue learning at home. Sign up for all four! The class is for kids; adults may accompany their child if needed. Ages 8–14.

$20 per child per session ($15 members), RSVP familyprograms@nyhistory.org. All sales are final and payments cannot be refunded.
