Educational programs are sponsored in part by Con Edison; the Ford Foundation; the National Endowment for the Arts; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; the Department of Youth and Community Services; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and City Council Member Helen Rosenthal.

Storytelling Scrolls

Through guided gallery discussion, participants will learn about different visual storytelling techniques found in the exhibition Vestiges and Verse. After drawing inspiration from Swiss artist Aloise Corbaz's hand sewn notebooks and large-scale scroll drawing, families will create their own fantastical, collaged murals in the Museum's studio.
