CMA will be putting the ARTS in S.T.E.M. in partnership with Hudson River Park Trust by inviting families to contribute to a Collaborative Diorama Project: Water Habitat Layers Collaborative! Each week, young artists will have a chance to explore the deep aquatic environment of the Hudson through thematic art workshops; while also contributing to a collaborative community project that will evolve throughout the summer. No registration required, just drop-in contribute when you are in the area on Tuesdays 1-2:30. This is a family program, no age restrictions applied. Children with disabilities are welcome. This program happens outdoors: please wear appropriate sun protection. Materials are limited to first come, first served.
