Virtual Art Workshop


Sunday, February 21, 2021

Join us for a virtual family tour and art-making experience inspired by our popular Picture This! series designed as an at-home opportunity for families.

Discover the story of Purim through whimsical objects, striking masks, and imaginative groggers created by artists in the Jewish Museum's collection. Get inspired and design your own playful puppet for the holiday or invent your own character using fabric, cardboard, and other materials you find at home.

Materials needed:
Thin cardboard such as tagboard, cardstock or a pasta box
Construction paper or other colorful decorative paper
Chopstick, dowel or branch
Heavy duty tape such as duct tape, packing tape or masking tape

While this program is presented free with RSVP, we appreciate your support of family programs at the Jewish Museum. The optional purchase of one ticket per household helps support our online concert series and virtual art workshops and tours for families.
