The way winter is proceeding – it is still winter, right? – you and your kids can expect to have ample playtime outdoors or in at Wave Hill this month. So plan on joining the Family Art Project, fit in some fresh air on the Great Lawn, and then spend some time with Matthew or Cameron. Just register first for some time with the artists, and check the age guidelines for their workshops, too.
