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!

Free, register online. Please note, registration closes 60 minutes before each session, when we pull the participant list. A Zoom link will be emailed to participants 30 minutes prior to the event. If you do not receive the Zoom link, please check your spam folder or email us at

Scroll to the bottom of the page to view archived Art Talk recordings.

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 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.

Art Talk with Lorenzo Cardim

Lorenzo Cardim was featured in Timber at Strathmore. His work expresses themes of social injustice and how LGBTQ+ people, people of color, and other 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.

Art Talk with Melinda Fabian 

Melinda Fabian creates sculptures from paper illustrated with watercolor and gouache. Melinda, who is exhibiting in Paper Works, will join us to discuss her process. 

Art Talk with Francisco Rosario

You may remember Francisco Rosario’s work from our exhibition Timber. Join us as he talks all things woodshop and welding.

Art Talk with Alanna Reeves

Alanna Reeves works in print and paint, on paper and fiber. Join us as she talks about her work in our upcoming winter exhibition, Past Process.

Emon Surakitkoson

Emon Surakitkoson’s solo exhibition Modulations and Harmony is opening this Fall. Join us for a peek into her process.
