Schuyler Sisters and the Age of Revolution
Ages 6 -14
$7 student
Registration is at full capacity

Join us for a special program just for homeschoolers, and explore the revolutionary time period through the Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle exhibition.  The Schuyler family was a notable Dutch family who resided in the local Capital Region.  The family and the 3 eldest sisters have been in the spotlight lately due to the popularity of Hamilton: An American Musical which features the Schuyler sisters and their connection to Alexander Hamilton. In this program, we’ll discover history in the galleries, and create hands on art inspired by the time period to take home.  This program is offered for children 6 to 14. Students will be placed into two groups based on age.

 

  • Registration is at full capacity.

Participation in the event assumes consent for photographs to be used for museum purposes unless participants otherwise notify the Albany Institute of History & Art.

Join us for an afternoon of painting fun for the whole family this December school vacation break!

This special paint workshop is a great parent child bonding opportunity.  We'll take our artistic inspiration from the Walter Launt Palmer painting, White World currently on view in the museum galleries.  Together we'll paint our own snowy scene as we experiment with adding texture (impasto effect) to our work and explore tints of color to our own vibrant winter scenes.  Our Director of Art Programs will lead the group through the process of creating their own masterpieces on canvas board to bring home.

All painters must register.  Tuition includes art materials and museum admission.  Accompanying adults are required to stay on the museum premises.

For more information about the paint workshop contact Sarah Clowe at 518-463-4478 ext. 435 or e-mail clowes@albanyinstitute.org
