ABOUT P.S. ARTS FAMILY ART NIGHTS AT JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT: KING PLEASURE LA
Facilitated by Los Angeles-based arts education nonprofit, P.S. ARTS, Family Art Night is an evening of hands-on artmaking inspired by the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat and led by a P.S. ARTS Teaching Artist. After visiting the exhibition, families are invited to explore, imagine and create their own neo-expressionist artwork in the courtyard outside of the galleries. All supplies are provided, participation is free of charge and no previous art experience is required. (45 minutes, starting at 6 PM)
Family Art Night Made possible through generous gifts from Boardwalk Pictures, GRoW at Annenberg, TodayTix, Turnaround Arts, and the Basquiat family.
