Family Day: Community Studio

  • to This is a past program

Family Day: Community Studio is a celebration of the discoveries, risk taking, and creative problem solving that take place in an artist’s studio. Whether you are making art to have fun, express yourself, or make a difference in the world, art is all about experimentation. The Hammer Museum invites the Los Angeles community to experiment with a variety of art materials and processes alongside contemporary artists. Join us for an afternoon of artist workshops, music, and more!
