Creative Family programs are rooted in the concept that artists—innovators fueled by curiosity, risk-taking, and experimentation—naturally connect with and stimulate the inherent sense of wonder in a child. The Aldrich trusts in the ability of families to explore sophisticated art and generate diverse ideas around and in response to it. Afternoon studios, camps, weekend workshops, and family friendly exhibition tours allow for peer-to-peer learning and intergenerational exchange.
