Playing & Making Abstract Art / Jugando y Creando Arte Abstracto

Designed for children age 5-12, this free, drop-in program includes gallery activities and an art project led by CSU Art Education faculty and students.

This Family Day program is inspired by the major exhibition currently on view, Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art, which focuses on artistic group known as Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square), founded in 1929. Although short-lived, it served as a foundation for a number of other important international artistic movements of the 1930s, such as Abstraction-Création in Paris and Torres-Garcia’s Circulo y Cuadrado in South America. Championing geometrically abstracted art at a pivotal moment in the history of abstraction, Cercle et Carré left a substantial legacy.

The Family Day will also embrace the international spirit of abstraction with tours and instruction in both English and Spanish, led by faculty and students in CSU’s Department of Language and Literature, and hands-on art activities led by CSU Art Education faculty and students.
