MCNY X PROJECT K!D

Images of shapes – a Ferris wheel, ice cream cone, pretzel, and camera – that appear to be cut out from paper floating on a light blue background, with the logos of the Museum of the City of New York and Project Kid.

Get crafty and creative this summer with NYC-inspired art projects you can do at home!  

 

Join the Museum of the City of New York and PROJECT K!D for virtual art-making sessions. In each weekly video, Amanda Kingloff, artist and founder of PROJECT K!D, will show you how to create a New York City-themed craft project using everyday materials.  

Each session will also include fun facts on NYC history using images from the Museum’s collections and award-winning exhibitions. 

Craft projects are geared toward families and kids ages 7 and up. Younger children may require adult supervision, and all families are encouraged to craft together.

  • JULY 15: Frozen Treats, City Streets: Get a virtual taste of ice cream’s history in New York City, and learn how to craft make-believe frozen treats using upcycled materials and paper

  • JULY 22: Focus on Fun: Build a cardboard "camera" and fill it with sketched images of the city inspired by influential NYC photographers

  • AUGUST 5: A Wonder-ful Time: Craft a model Coney Island Wonder Wheel from paper supplies and celebrate the 100th birthday of this iconic amusement park ride 

Each session will begin streaming on YouTube at 10am on the listed day, and will be available afterwards for later viewing.
