Family Learning programs at the Rubin Museum are shared art experiences for children and their adult partners. Inspired by the museum’s exhibitions, these programs foster the development of life-long learning skills through gallery explorations, open-ended discussions, demonstrations, interpretive arts, crafts, and individual and collaborative projects. All Family classes and workshops begin in the Education Center at 132 West 17th Street.
