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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 485-9276.
Saturday, January 31; 2015, 2 – 4 pm
Families will visit two photography exhibitions on display at the New-York Historical Society, Freedom Journey 1965: Photographs of the Selma to Montgomery March by Stephen Somerstein and Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage, and will discuss how photographs document and connect to emotional and historical events.
In the studio, families will assemble and decorate an album in which they can collect and arrange the meaningful photographs from their own lives.
