HOP INTO ART
Filling a gap in arts education in public schools, this workshop program gives families immediate access to high quality art while offering insights into the exhibitions and local history presented at Edward Hopper House.
Saturdays & Sundays from 1-3 PM at the Edward Hopper House offer ongoing family art workshops. Hop Into Art is FREE* with the accompanying guardians' admission to the House. (This is not a drop-off event.)
*Attending FAMILY members ALSO receive free admission to the House if their child is enrolled in one of partnering districts:
HOP INTO ART WORKSHOP:
Weekends in JANUARY 2020:
How will you combine figures and settings in surprising ways? Experiment with composition and storytelling as you create a collage inspired by the works of Edward Hopper and landscape photography by Rodney Smith. A workshop for ALL AGES, you will experiment with compositional possibilities before gluing down pieces, and tell stories through collage.
HOP INTO ART WORKSHOPS:
Weekends in FEBRUARY 2020:
Arrange, layer, find, and feel. Create your own texture rubbing using materials featured in the photographs of Rodney Smith – like leaves, bark, stone – and around the Edward Hopper House, such as fabrics, bricks, wood trim, even rubber from a bicycle tire! After families create compositions by rubbing over these textures, they may participant in a scavenger hunt to find each material in the house or photo exhibition.
