Family Fridays at Remington Museum
The Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg will be offering family art classes on the first four Fridays in August.
Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum will be offering four “Family Fridays” art classes in August. The classes take place from 10am to noon on the first four Fridays in August (August 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd). Classes begin at the Frederic Remington Art Museum and finish at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center two doors down the street.
The classes give children 6-14 and their adult caregivers an opportunity to explore the work of Frederic Remington on display at the Remington Museum, and to engage in hands-on artmaking related to our explorations in the Museum. Participants can sign up for as many or few of the classes as they like.
The cost of the class is $5 per family; all materials will be provided. Each class is limited to 20 participants. Call 315-393-2425 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions or sign up.
In conjunction with the Morristown Plein Air Festival, the August 2nd Family Friday program will explore painting outdoors. Participants will meet several plein air paintings on display in the Remington Museum, before moving outdoors to paint their own scenes in the beautiful grounds of the Eva Caten Remington Education Center.
“Exploring and making art together is such a fun and enriching activity to do with your grandkids, kids, nieces, or nephews,” says Museum Education Specialist Laura Desmond. “Remington’s work has something to say to everyone, and we’ll have a lot of fun getting our hands dirty with some Remington-inspired art activities.”
