Art & Me Preservation Family Workshop | Wearable Art

September 24, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm


Explore the wear and tear of wearable art in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Freer and Sackler. From metals and jewels to seeds and plastics, see the possibilities of wearable art and how our art doctors care for the objects. String together your own untraditional creation as you learn from conservators.

Designed for ages 3–5 and their caretakers, the workshop encourages families to experiment with art-making and preservation techniques. This program is part of a yearlong series co-hosted by SAAM and the National Museum of Asian Art.

Free | Registration required via Eventbrite
