Welcome to After School Art Club, a free weekly online program with Whitney educators! Kids ages 5 to 10 are invited to experiment and make art with at-home art materials. Tell a friend and join the club!
This week’s activity is inspired by Jay DeFeo. The artist began The Rose with only an idea of something “that had a center to it.” She worked on it for eight years in her apartment in San Francisco until she was evicted and forced to stop. Together we will explore the fascinating story behind The Rose. Then, we will create our own collages with hidden secrets!
