The Parrish Art Museum offers house projects through its website. This glued color wheel made from recycled papers is part of a two day project.
Arts organizations, including the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, the Bay Street Theater, and the Parrish Art Museum, have changed their educational programs for families and children to make them available digitally and free of charge.
On Thursday, Joyce Raimondo, Pollock-Krasner Educational Coordinator, will offer a video tour of the Painters’ House and Studio, discussing the artistic process of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner and how they expressed their feelings through the paint. She will then suggest ways for participants to share their own feelings in art using things already in the house. The program will be available via Zoom video chat from 2 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. for children aged 5 to 12 accompanied by adults and from 4 p.m. to 4:40 p.m. for children aged 9 to 18. Registration is done by email [email protected].
The Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will begin an online theater camp Monday, and it will be free for its first week. Allen O’Reilly, the theater’s education director, will lead students ages 7 to 13 in weekly sessions until May 1.
Classes will take place on Zoom, Monday to Friday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., focusing on developing participants’ singing and body movements, acting, improvisation and script reading. Over a long career as an actor and teacher, Mr. O’Reilly focused on Shakespeare, but was also seen in several television series.
For anytime creativity, Parrish Education Department offers Parrish Home Art Studios, an interactive online program for children and their families. Each Tuesday, the Watermill Museum will announce a week-long program of six new daily activities inspired by its art collection and post lesson plans on its website.
The projects will require common materials found in most households and can be done individually or through family collaboration. Participants will then be encouraged to share their completed projects on Instagram using #ParrishHomeArtStudios. Projects and lesson plans will remain as an archive on the museum’s website.
