Family Saturday: Outdoor Rubbing Art


Head to the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College on Saturday, August 4th for Family Saturday: Outdoor Rubbing Art. Kids will look at and talk about Dona Nelson’s work that uses rubbings in the exhibition Stand Alone Paintings then will venture outside with white paper and crayons to create their own artistic rubbings by using the bark on trees, the surfaces of sidewalks, and much more.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required and can be made starting one week before the program. For more information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
