    Family Events

    "Father Figures" at the Clark
    Sunday, June 17, 3:00 pm
    As we celebrate the opening of Impression: Painting Quickly in France, 1860-1890, it's a good moment to look at paintings by the "Fathers" of Impressionism--artists of the preceding generation such as Corot, Daubigny, and artists of the Barbizon School. Curator of education Michael Cassin will give a slide talk about these artists as well as images by and of fathers. Throughout the day, fathers who bring their families to the Clark are invited to enjoy a free coffee and pastry.

    "Impressions of Paris" Family Day
    Sunday, August 12, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
    The lawns of the Clark will be transformed into the streets of Paris for an outdoor family festival in conjunction with Impression: Painting Quickly in France, 1860-1890. French boutiques, carriage rides, even the Eiffel tower will reflect the everyday life and color of the City of Light. Children will have the chance to "paint quickly" as well as make crafts such as masks and fans. Vendors will offer French food as well as "kid-friendly" fare. Indoor activities include guided talks and music in the galleries. Admission is free.
