A new round of Albright-Knox Art Classes for Children and Teens to start in October

As the weather turns cooler, and it becomes more difficult to plan fun outside activities for kids, consider some of the engaging activities and classes happening at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in October. Below are some classes to introduce children to the art of looking and creation, or plan a day with your family at the museum. 

Art Classes for Children and Teens

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
