Family Saturdays: Ocean Habitat Diorama

The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College presents a series of seven Family Saturday programs to accompany the work in our summer exhibitions Dona Nelson: Stand Alone Paintings and Give a damn.

Held on Saturdays from July 7 through August 18, the programs include a brief tour of one of the exhibitions followed by a hands-on art-making activity, with all materials provided.

The programs run from 2:00 to 3:30 PM, except on Frances Day on July 14, and are free and open to the public. Suitable for children ages 5 and up along with their adult companions. Reservations are required and may be made one week in advance of the program. For more information and reservations, please call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.

August 11 — Ocean Habitat Diorama

Artist Dona Nelson created artwork inspired by whales and octopus. After viewing her work, we will make dioramas of underwater habitats with boxes, bubble wrap, pipe cleaners, scrap paper, and your own creations of swimming creatures!
