Schools out! Create and innovate with the Nassau County Museum of Art during Break for Art. Inspired by the art on view, Lunar New Year, and Black history Month, children and their adult caregivers will create together.

 Pre-registration is required: Session 1: 11am-12:30pm Session 2: 1-2:30pm. 

Three days of family art-making inspired by the art on view in the Museum’s exhibition Urban Art Evolution. A different project will be offered each day encouraging creative exploration by children and their adult companions. Create with us for 1, 2, or all 3 days!

  • Tuesday, April 23: Opening Doors! Using several examples of graffiti art from the Museum’s exhibition for inspiration, create your own building facade to decorate, tag, and personalize. Each building will include a moveable door for an added element of surprise.
  • Wednesday, April 24: Mechanical Masterpiece! Create your own 3D, kinetic (moveable) robot sculpture inspired by the work of Rodney Alan Greenblat.
  • Thursday, April 25: Crossing Lines! Make a textural name collage using string, yarn, and ribbon, inspired by the work of several graffiti artists who utilized line in their creations.

While here, see our current exhibit, walk our nature trails and Sculpture Garden, and visit the Millstone Reference Library in the Manes Center.
