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 design 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 for more information about the program, e-mail hablemos@nyhistory.org.
