Save and Misbehave: Kid’s Edition at MOCA!

As kids all over town head back to school for yet another year of bad influences, second guessing themselves, and melodramas (er… I mean math, history, and arts classes), we can all agree that they could use some confidence in their choices and at the very least some interesting stories to answer the question “what did you do this summer?” This Sunday (and every first Sunday of the month) at MOCA is the “For Families” workshop.  This month, you’ll join a guided tour of their Collecting History: Recent Acquisitions exhibit and discover a range of artists working with a variety of media.  Afterward, you (and the child you’ve brought) will be able to express your own creativity with a workshop with Megan Sant where you can make your own sculptural project. It starts at 1pm and is FREE, with no reservations required.  Think of how confident they’ll be heading back to class and telling their friends about the textural composition in Eduardo Abaroa’s work!

If you’ve got a teen who is perpetually embarrassed to be seen with (God forbid) an actual family member, they’re free to drop by with their friends between 1 – 3:30pm for their own guided tour and an artist-led workshop.  Their sculptures, unlike the little kids than came before them, will be filled with the important dramas of teenage angst to be sure.  Ah, to be a family!

“First Sundays are For Families” Workshop is held this Sunday, September 6, 2009 at 1:00pm for free.  They’re held the first Sunday of every month.  For more information, please click here.
