PECO Family Jams: One Book, One Philadelphia presents “Drawn Together”

May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In conjunction with the Free Library’s “One Book, One Philadelphia” program, we are celebrating Drawn Together written by Minh Lê and illustrated by Dan Santat. In this beautiful children’s book a shared love of art and storytelling overcomes communication barriers between a young boy and his grandfather. Like them, participants will imagine a fantastical world and create a self-image to inhabit it. Instead of paint brushes and colored markers, you’ll use a black-and-white printer, bits of cloth, and a variety of templates — from antelope horns to mermaid tails – to construct your new selves.

Learn about the self-portraits of PMG creator Isaiah Zagar during their family-friendly tours at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 PM.

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between noon and 4:00 p.m. Reservations are not required for PECO Family Jams. Crafts and basement tours are included with regular admission. Purchase your tickets in advance.
