What’s on for Kids in NYC this Weekend: January 30 & 31

Let’s see the month of January out in style with some fabulous family events taking place in the city, or from the comfort of your own home.  Below are our picks for making this weekend wonderful for your family.


Online
Family Art Project: Textures of the Wetlands
Saturday January 30, 10am – 11am
Online, hosted by Wave Hill
Free with registration

Flooded by water, wetlands are ecosystems that welcome biodiversity. They are very important landscapes that nourish and heal nature. For World Wetlands Day, we’ll take some time to investigate what makes wetlands so natural at healing and how you can support wetlands in these processes. Using experimental mark-making, resist techniques and alternative printing processes, translate textures into vibrant, multi-dimensional works of art. Collect found, upcycled and natural objects around you to play with textures in paint.
