Virtual Art Talks for Kids

Young art lovers and families can join us for Virtual Art Talks for Kids and explore artwork and artists from current and past exhibitions. 
 
Talks are led by Strathmore Exhibition Coordinator Gabrielle Tillenburg and special guest artists. Kids can meet the artists, learn about their work, and ask questions in real time! Plus, we’ll provide an art activity for families to enjoy together.
 
Free, RSVP online to receive the Zoom link prior to the event. Please note, registration closes 30 minutes before each session, when we send out the email. Attendance is limited to the first 100 people. If you do not receive the zoom link 30 minutes prior to the event, please check your spam folder or email us at strathmore@strathmore.org.
 
Strathmore's Virtual Programming is supported by AARP Maryland.

 

Art Talk with Lorenzo Cardim
Fri, May 22, 10:30am 

Lorenzo Cardim was featured in Timber at Strathmore. His work expresses themes of social injustice and how LGBTQ, people of color, and other minority groups question the status quo. His sculptures often incorporate contrasting materials, such as nail polish and stitching on wood, and he also works in video and performance.

 

To Participate 
A Zoom link will be emailed to participants prior to the event. Zoom can be accessed by any computer or tablet web browser, and iPhone or Android phones. A built-in web camera and microphone is recommended, but not necessary to participate. We ask that everyone keep their microphones muted during the talk, but kids can use the Raise Hand feature to be called on and ask a question using either the microphone or chat. While we love to see everyone’s faces, Zoom also allows you to turn off your camera if it makes you feel more comfortable.


Note: These events will be recorded and published on Strathmore.org and Strathmore’s YouTube Channel so that more families can benefit. Participants’ questions/comments will be heard in the recording, but it will not show any participant faces (only the faces of our hosts).

Past Virtual Art Talks for Kids

Art Talk with Mandi Moerland

Moerland is featured in our current exhibition, Shake It Out: Mandi Moerland, now online. Her artwork captures the movement and grace of dance in paintings and drawings.

 

Art Talk with Terron Cooper Sorrells

Sorrells was featured in a solo exhibition, The Railroad, at Strathmore. He uses painting and printmaking to explore the stories of African Americans typically left out of US history textbooks. His imagery drafts narratives that, while fictional, stand for stories untold. 

Art Talk with Shana Kohnstamm

Shana Kohnstamm was featured in the 32nd Biennial Exhibition of the Creative Crafts Council at Strathmore. Her soft sculptures are created using an ancient method of shaping and firming wool called felting.
