Wake + Create

Our Saturday program for kids ages 6 - 10 and their caregivers

January 19, 2019 10:30 am Griswold House

Join us on select Saturdays for engaging family-oriented programming designed to inspire young minds and satisfy the curiosity of every member of the family. Each Wake + Create is uniquely curated based on a theme, includes a Guided Close Looking Tour of works in the galleries, followed by engaging art making activities geared for ages 6-10, their families and caregivers. Wake + Create is generously supported by the Hartfield Foundation.

This month’s topic:

Geometric design and patterning in Islamic art.

Look at the photographs by internationally renowned artist Lalla Essaydi and discuss how complex Islamic patterning enhances these works of art. Learn about how math and geometry play into Islamic design and architecture, then create your own repeating design out of paper.

This event is made possible by your support of the Annual Fund.
