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 march 2020:
Study, Sketch, Stylize
Before creating paintings, Edward Hopper made careful sketches of what he observed. Come sketch people and rooms in the Hopper House, and then add watercolor and details in the Art Lab! Family members can work independently, or adults can sketch and children can add watercolor.
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.
