Tang at Home Studio: What A View!
Online Zoom Session | 11 a.m. – Noon
Photographer Danielle St. Laurent created a series of family portraits during the pandemic in which families are separated by windows. This week, we look at Laurent’s photographs in the exhibition Pandemic and Protest and think about how we can find creative ways to connect with others. Then, we will make our own paper-based windows from which we can look out at the world, and others can look at us. What will you reveal from your window? Register the Monday before the Saturday session. Sessions are best suited for kids ages 5 – 12 and their adult companions, but everyone is welcome. To register: tang.skidmore.edu/calendar/1395-tang-at-home-studio-what-a-view.
