Saturday Family Workshop

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 House Divided. 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.

THE TILE CLUB: Plein Air Painting Workshop with Scott Bluedorn at Mulford Farm

Select Wednesdays, 5-7pm:
6/30: Camp Hero, Montauk
7/28: Gerard Drive, Springs
8/25: Mulford Farm, East Hampton
(Rain Dates: Thursday 7/1 Camp Hero; Thursday 7/29 Gerard Drive; Thursday 9/2 Mulford Farm)

Community Artist In Residence, Scott Bluedorn will lead a series of plein air painting workshops as a part of his residency project with Guild Hall.  Scott’s project is focused on the history, practice, and revitalization of “The Tile Club;” a group of artists from the late 19th century, who met and painted on decorative tiles, often en plein air, on the Eastern End of Long Island.

Scott will host artists once a month on Wednesdays in June, July and August at the following locations: Camp Hero in Montauk, Gerard Drive in Springs, and Mulford Farm in East Hampton. During these free workshops artists will paint on tiles provided by Guild Hall and are asked to bring their own acrylic paints, brushes, water jar, palette, and protective weather gear. We ask that each participant gives at least one tile to Guild Hall to be included in a final installation culminating this project in the Fall of 2021.

Stories and Crafts with the East Hampton Library

Recommended for children ages 3+ 

Join storytellers and creatives from Guild Hall and the East Hampton Library for a family hour of stories, gallery tours, and art workshops. At each session we will be reading a children’s book in response to the current Guild Hall exhibit, followed by a hands-on workshop. 

This series is produced in tandem with the exhibition Robert Longo: A House Divided. 

Sessions are held in-person at Guild Hall with a maximum of 15 people. When registering, please be sure to register both adults and children.  

Each session is a hybrid of indoor and outdoor activity. Gallery tours occur in the Museum and the adjoining workshop in Guild Hall’s Minikes Garden. Masks are required at all times.
