MCNY X Project Kid
The Museum of the City of New York and PROJECT K!D invite young artists to virtual art-making sessions. Each week Amanda Kingloff, artist and founder of PROJECT K!D, shows participants how to create a NYC-themed craft project using everyday materials.
Each session will also include fun facts on NYC history using images from the Museum’s collections and award-winning exhibitions.

JULY 22: Focus on Fun: Build a cardboard "camera" and fill it with sketched images of the city inspired by influential NYC photographers
JULY 29: Animal Friends: Hear about animals who played a role in shaping NYC and craft animal puppets from homemade materials
