Children of all ages welcome for a morning of comic activities at several stations around The Contemporary’s indoor and outdoor spaces! A photobooth with comedy props in the style of Carol Burnett’s “What I Want To Be When I Grow Up”, open mic for joke-making, chairs with whoopee cushions, Gilda Radner paper doll making, throwing banana peels, and whipped cream pies abound!

11:30 am: Laughter Yoga!

Join Laughter Yoga Atlanta for a playful Laughter Yoga session where you will learn how to laugh abundantly without jokes. Laughter Yoga is a laughter and deep breathing practice whereby practically anyone can reliably achieve the benefits of abundant laughter without requiring any special exercise equipment, a sense of humor, or even needing to feel good in the first place. All that is needed is a willingness let go, have fun, and feel great!
Both children and their caregivers may participate. 15-25 minute session. Please arrive on time.
Location: Lecture Hall

About Contemporary Kids:
Contemporary Kids is an interactive and family-friendly program to introduce young children to contemporary art and artists through approachable mediums and focused hands-on and adaptable activities. Atlanta Contemporary Art Center provides one Contemporary Kids program with every exhibition on view, informed by themes presented by artists or artworks on view. Contemporary Kids are held on Saturday mornings at 11am, are free and drop-in to children and their caregivers, and refreshments are always provided. Contemporary Kids is focused on children ranging from 3-10 years in age, though caregivers may discern the skill level of their child on a case-by-case basis regarding their anticipated involvement in any activity. The Contemporary provides supplemental material that children may take home to continue their on-site activity.

Refreshments sponsored and provided by H&F Bread Co.:

Generous material support for Contemporary Kids is provided by Binders Art Supplies & Frames at Ponce City Market:
