February Break Children’s Workshop
** Sorry, this workshop is full! Click here to register for the April Children’s Workshop. **
Treat your children to an art adventure during school break! The Hyde Collection’s half-day Children’s Workshops offer experiences to transport kids to a world of color and excitement.
From February 19 to 22, your children can immerse themselves in the bright, colorful world of advertisements in Colorama, an exhibition at The Hyde comprising thirty-six large-scale photos displayed in Grand Central’s terminals between 1950 and 1990. Participants in the Colorama workshop will explore photography and art with this exhibition from the George Eastman Museum.
The workshops are offered in two sessions:
Ages 5 – 8, from 10 am to 12:30 pm
Ages 9 – 12, from 1 to 3:30 pm
Sign your child up for one day, or for the entire week! See the daily project themes below.
Full Week Workshop: $60 members / $80 non-members
Single day Workshop: $20 members / $25 non-members

Practice with the photographic eye, which always knows when to point and shoot. Learn about the rule of thirds, using a viewfinder, and cropping images to create artwork.
Thursday, February 21: Pop Art
The 1960s was a happening time! Learn how pop culture made its way into the art world. Participants will create an artwork to be photographed and digitally altered to make a groovy masterpiece.

Photography captures a moment in time. What happened right before? What will happen next? Participants will continue the stories found in Colorama using both visuals and the written word.
