Art & Me Preservation Family Workshop | May Day Celebration

  • On May 1, 2021, SAAM presented a virtual family workshop featuring art conservators from across the Smithsonian. Learn how our team of art doctors preserve and protect musical works of art from across our collections in a sustainable way. Then try your hand at crafting your own musical instrument from supplies you likely have at home. This program is intended for children ages three to eight and their caregivers.  
    This program is part of a series that encourages families to experiment with artmaking and preservation techniques. It is part of a yearlong series cohosted by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art.
