This free, hands-on art workshop is open to children from ages 4 to 12, with supervision by a parent or guardian. Young artists will be inspired by the artwork created by Richard Eagan and Philomena Marano in Art of the Coney Island Hysterical Society, the current exhibition. They will discuss the rides, signs, graphics, numbers, shapes, colors they see in the artwork, then go on a treasure hunt and sketch details. Then, using colored paper, stencils, scissors, colored pencils and glue, young artists will create their own Coney Island ride or amusement. They will learn how to arrange shapes to create positive and negative spaces and a dynamic composition. All materials will be provided.
