Do you know what it means to be “Hirschfelded”? Try your hand at this exciting, educator-led sketching program. Families will be introduced to the work of Al Hirschfeld through the works exhibited in The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld. They will look closely at his use of expressive lines and, after a turn in the Barber’s Chair, have the chance to embellish their own Hirschfeld!
