Saturday Family Workshop Painting with the Whole Body with Virva Hinnemo
Guild Hall’s Saturday Family workshops are the perfect way for families to take part in shared learning and creativity. Each session allows families, ages 4+, to explore and reflect on the works exhibited in Guild Hall’s Museum as they create unique works of their own.
From reimagining famed abstract expressionist works to experimenting with charcoals, each Saturday Family Workshop provides a new viewpoint and level of engagement to the current exhibition, Robert Longo: A History of the Present. Workshops are led by a rotating team of locally based educators and artists, embracing the diversity and artist colony of the Hamptons.
A single registration is for families of no more than four people.
