Second Saturdays: Model It!

In each session, led by Hofstra University Museum educators, children and their adult companions explore works of art on exhibit and engage in a hands-on activity inspired by what they have seen and discussed.  In the April session, Model It!, participants will reveal the power of portraiture. Listen to a story read by a museum educator and create your own work of art that depicts a person.
