Mark Your Calendar For MoMA’s Member Family Picnic
As school comes to a close, we’re on the lookout for fun family events to stay busy this summer! So when we heard about The Museum of Modern Art’s Member Family Picnic, we knew we had to share.
On Saturday, June 11, from 9:30 am to noon, MoMA invites members and their families at the Explore category and above to a jam-packed morning of art, live music, snacks, and more. Recommended for ages 5 and up, the event is the perfect kickoff to summer if your kids love to get crafty and creative.
Families can visit Matisse: The Red Studio to discover how the artist represented his creative space. Your kiddos will love the exhibition’s drop-in studio, where they can draw the spaces that inspire them and consider how color can show their emotions.
For more family favorites, head to the Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, where they will make their own sketchbooks with stamps, and a rainbow of colors. After, kids can grab a pencil to try some drawing prompts to spark their creativity!
And if that wasn’t enough, in Architecture for Tomorrow, you’ll make a model for a sustainable structure using a mix of recycled materials and art supplies. As NYC parents, we love environmentally focused art projects like this that encourage our kids to think about the impact we have on the planet.
