Dear Families,

Join us for an exploration of symbols, fashion, and identity through interactive activities designed for kids ages 8–11 and their caregivers. Drawing inspiration from women’s garments and accessories from Bard Graduate Center’s fall 2019 exhibition French Fashion, Women, and the First World War, this one-hour virtual workshop engages participants in art-making and connects fashion to their own lives.

Saturday, April 24, 2021
10:30–11:30 am
Pay What You Wish!

All are welcome, including teaching pods and families learning remotely! 

Sessions will be led virtually through Zoom, using all safety precautions and procedures. A Zoom meeting link and a materials list will be emailed at least 24 hours in advance of the workshop.

We are currently accepting reservations for this workshop and encourage you to book before all spaces are filled. For more information and to share your artwork with us after the workshop, email

Continue the Exploration!

Parents, please get in touch if you would like to organize a workshop for your child and their learning pod.

If you’re looking to collaborate with the whole family, download pages from our publication, A Charles Percier Coloring Book, and continue the historic tradition of hand-colored prints by adding your own colors!

Check out the hands-on activities in our Family Guides! Drawing inspiration from the life and work of Eileen Gray, the activities help young people reimagine everyday objects and the spaces they inhabit.
