Monthly drop-in Family Workshops at the AAM are designed to provide children and adults free opportunities to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Participants get to know one another better through engagement with exhibitions. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together.
Discover the secrets of drawing, transforming blank pages into forms filled with life and energy. Exploring techniques of shadowing, perspective, and contour, our linear experiments will unlock the power of drawing to bring students’ imaginations to life. Students will respond to creative challenges in the gallery, studio, and outdoors that sharpen the power of drawing.
Experiment and explore the art of printmaking in this Gabriel Orozco–inspired Workshop! Taking note of the artist’s use of the everyday, students will create artworks that celebrate the magic in ordinary objects, while learning new and exciting techniques to help make their images a reality.

Hank Willis Thomas was born in 1976, in Plainfield, NJ, and currently lives and works in New York. This year, he and Eric Gottesman founded For Freedoms, the first artist-run super PAC. Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 speech, “Four Freedoms” (freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear), this project has presented public works from contemporary artists to inspire deeper political engagement for citizens who want to have a greater impact on the American political landscape.
