Hour-long virtual workshops for youth and family groups engage participants in creative exploration and artmaking, inspired by works of art in the Art Institute's collection and the summer special exhibition, The Obama Portraits. Workshops can accommodate both fully remote learning groups and groups who are onsite in parks, libraries, and other community spaces. A list of suggested activity supplies, including common art supplies and household materials, will be shared in advance of the program.
