Close proximity to the arts isn’t just for our members who pay bills. Our programming also extends to kids whose curiosity is at an all time high and waiting to be engaged, and Mini Cultivist programming does just that.
Across New York, London and Los Angeles, young minds have explored the art of cartoon making at the Cartoon Museum, familiarised themselves with the elements that inspired Walt Disney at the Huntington, and most recently, learned about textile art with an artist-in-residence at the Museum of Art and Design in New York.
In the near future, our mini members will gain an understanding of the exhilarating world of auctioning at Phillips New York. They will arrive with their favourite works of art and learn how to bid with an Sarah Krueger, an auctioneer at Phillips.
On the other side of the country, we will host a private tour of Refik Anadol's "Living Paintings" at Jeffery Deitch's LA gallery space. The array of swirling colours is sure to amaze the kids and also the guardians accompanying them, and as always, we'll conclude with an activity inspired by the exhibition.
To appease their creative side, a highly anticipated graffiti lesson is scheduled for the summer. A knowledgable street artist will teach them to make their own artist tag and eventually create graffiti masterpieces.
These events are made to help our youngest members to think and express their ideas more freely, in addition to being highly entertaining for everyone involved.
Mini Cultivist events are available to our club-level members. Learn more about our membership offerings here.
