Hablemos de la Historia y del Arte: Locomotives, Trains and Subways: Keep On Moving
Saturday, December 20th, 2014 | 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.

Locomotives, Trains and Subways: Keep On Moving
Saturday, December 20; 2014, 2 – 4 pm

Transportation has been at the center of innovation throughout the ages. Families will visit the toy train exhibition The Holiday Express and the DiMenna Children's History Museum to explore the impact of these specific modes of transportation on history and our lives.

In the studio, families will create a train route map connecting places they have visited and places they would like to visit.
