Families and Folk Art is held the first Saturday of every month. This program introduces children ages 4 to 12 and their accompanying adults to folk art through interactive discussion-based tours in the galleries followed by hands-on artmaking activities inspired by objects in the museum. Museum admission is always free. Space is limited; registration required.

Educational programs are sponsored in part by Con Edison; the Ford Foundation; the National Endowment for the Arts; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; the Department of Youth and Community Services; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and City Council Member Helen Rosenthal.
Through guided gallery discussion, families will explore the ways in which exhibition artists have invented—everything from their own languages, to flying machines, to a “zoo” of otherwordly animals, to imaginary architecture! Back in the studio, participants will dream up their own inventions by drawing and sculpting them into unique works of art.
