Combine art and engineering in this virtual intergenerational STEAM education program as you draw inspiration from the famous Stettheimer dollhouse to design your own miniature world.  

Learn about the life of the dollhouse’s creator, Carrie Stettheimer, and the vibrant community of artists that gathered in her home in NYC to share their creativity. Experiment with recycled materials to create your own miniature dollhouse room in a live art-making activity.  

Recommended for ages 7 and older, and all ages are welcome! Sessions are intergenerational and family members are encouraged to join and participate together. 

How it Works:

Sessions are live taught and interactive in a virtual setting that balances active engagement and privacy. Programs are presented as webinars. You will be able to send questions, comments, and observations via the chat feature to the educators, but participants will not use cameras or mics and will not be visible on screen.
