Virtual Art & Me Preservation Family Workshop: Bugging Out

Saturday, June 11, 2022, 10 – 10:45am EDT
Moths and beetles and termites, oh my! Learn how bugs can be used to make artwork and look at examples from the Smithsonian’s collections in this virtual family workshop. As you test your insect knowledge and paint your own creepy crawlers, discover ways curators prevent bugs from munching on precious artworks. This hands-on, art-making preservation workshop is designed for children ages three to eight and their caretakers. The program is cohosted by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art.   
Register now! One registration per family. A Zoom link and a list of suggested materials will be sent to registered participants 24–48 hours in advance of the workshop.
