Children and their families are invited to participate in a series of two-hour art classes to better understand the work of women artists whose portraits are featured in the current exhibition “Women of Our Time: Twentieth-Century Portraits.”

The first class will take a guided tour of the exhibition and then create artwork based on the main ideas from Georgia O’Keeffe’s work. This program is recommended for families with children ages 5 to 10. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited; please call (202) 633-8501 to register.

This series will occur again on Saturday, Nov. 15, featuring the work of Maya Lin, who designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial; Saturday, Dec. 20, featuring the work of American folk artist Grandma Moses; and Saturday, Jan. 17, 2009, featuring the work of sculptor Marisol, known for her unique style in the 1960s.

This program will begin in the National Portrait Gallery education center, first floor, room E151.
