Family Studio: Magic Alphabet Workshop

Sun, Apr 7 / 10:30 am–12 pm

Join artist educator Alayna Wiley for creative play with letters and words inspired by the Twist typeface currently on view in Sonya Clark: We Are Each Other. Sonya Clark designed the typeface based on her hair’s curl pattern to push back against cultural erasures of indigenous scripts. Guided by the artist’s inventive spirit, we will explore the transformative power of typography and create our own secret letter codes and magical alphabets.

Family Studio is a collaborative workshop for children ages five and up and their caregivers to learn, explore, and create together. Admission for children 12 and under is free and children must be attended by a caregiver.

Tickets for ages 13 and up are required and include general admission to the Museum.
