 Then and Now: The Evolution of Everyday Objects

Families will explore centuries-old everyday objects from the New-York Historical Society's permanent collection. Come sketch and discover how these objects worked and how they evolved over time. Some even became obsolete! Then families will sculpt and decorate the objects they viewed in the galleries. Join us!

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 ages 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 program’s theme, using materials such as watercolors, pastels, mixed media, and photography.

The program is free, but participants must make a reservation. To make a reservation for families in your school, community or cultural group, or to get more information about the program, e-mail or call (212) 485-9276.
