Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Coordinator Eva Bosbach reports:
After our Necklaces-making and Tram Art program last September, we would like to invite you to another event in the "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network.

Join us for "Matisse for Kids" on December 11 2014, 4-6pm, at the 475 Main Street lounge! Bring some glue, crayons and kids scissors and let your children's fantasy take over for some Matisse-inspired cutouts and collages. Any books featuring Henri Matisse, for children and for adults, are also welcome. We are planning to include a story time after the craft.

A related Matisse exhibition is currently on display at MoMA until February 8 2015:

Please RSVP to by Sunday, Dec 7. Depending on the number of children we may create several time slots in the 4-6pm window to have smaller groups of children crafting together.

Looking forward to seeing you!
