Families will be inspired to create artwork by the emotions felt when listening to Jazz.

Explore how your mood is affected by musical elements such as key, melody, harmony and tempo, using a piece of historic sheet music as your canvas.

This program is part of our "Jazzed!: The Changing Beat of 125th Street" exhibit and takes place on the lower level.

Romare Bearden - My World as Colorful Melodies, 10:00am

All ages
