Join us for artmaking fun and turn your family into a work-of-art! Inspired by Joan Brown’s painting, A Family Portrait, we will help you create your own personal family portrait. Joan Brown became a famous Bay Area artist at a young age. Much of her artwork was inspired by memories from her childhood visits to the art museum.

Although the event is live-streamed via the Cantor’s Facebook channel, we encourage you to register so you can follow the activity along our museum educators, and ask questions if you have them.
