Saturday Family Storytime is at the Saratoga Springs Public Library today from 11:30am to 12pm. A children's librarian will read stories and lead songs/rhymes. This program is open to children ages 2-5 with their parent or caregiver. Siblings are welcome. No registration required.
Family Saturday: Rope Dancers is at The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art
Gallery at Skidmore College, 815 North Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
We will find our way into the work Rope Dance, part of the new exhibition Janine Antoni & Stephen Petronio: Entangle, then talk about the role of the rope in our experiences. We will then make ropey art out of colored filament, and create dancers by winding and tying the material in different ways.
Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.
All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
