This series of two-hour art classes are designed for youth to better understand the work of women artists whose portraits are featured in the exhibition, “Women of Our Time: Twentieth-Century Portraits.”
Registered participants will take a guided tour of the exhibition and then create their own pieces based on ideas from Georgia O’Keeffe’s work. This program is recommended for youth ages 10 to 14, accompanied by an adult. Space is limited; please call (202) 633-8501 to register.
This series will continue 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 sculptor Marisol, known for her unique style in the 1960s.
