Spring Family Education Workshops


Saturday, April 12, 2014

The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art is committed to interdisciplinary educational programs that enrich the city of Peekskill, a multicultural community that has recreated itself as a major arts destination.

Beginning Saturday, April 12th HVCCA’s Museum Educator, David Licata, will be offering Saturday Family Education Workshops from 2 – 4 PM at the museum. On select Saturdays HVCCA will hold an art activity for families with children of all ages. The art lessons are related to the current exhibitions at HVCCA. The lessons can take about two hours and usually include a family friendly tour of the exhibition and hands-on arts activities.
