Eckford Street Studio is thrilled to offer a FREE series of family art classes, offered in conjunction with Ziemia, on four consecutive Sundays from 3pm-5pm, beginning March 12th. Participants in these workshops will work as families to create art inspired by the concepts essential to Ziemia: individual and collective identity, stories and memory, and the earth we all live on.

Each week will focus on a different project and concept. Families will spend time discussing the theme of the week among themselves and with the larger group, then create art based on the conversations. Participants are encouraged to attend all four workshops, but are welcome to attend as many or few as they wish.


Ziemia Family Workshops are open to families with children age 7 and older.
