Special Family Event
Hablemos de la Historia y del Arte: Buildings that Have Shaped New York City
Saturday, February 28th, 2015 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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.
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.

Buildings that Have Shaped New York City

Families will examine paintings of New York buildings and will uncover the historical events and everyday lives that have transformed these spaces and our community.

In the studio, families will create cut-out paper buildings and develop a story for each floor. Families can either collaborate on a building or work individually.
