Our guide to cultural events in New York City for children and teenagers happening this weekend and in the week ahead.

ART SUNDAE at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (Jan. 12, 2-4 p.m.). You won’t find any ice cream here, but the fun is sure to be delicious. Presented by the nonprofit Art Production Fund and the cultural center Fort Gansevoortthis event is part of a free series that invites children to exercise their imaginations while working with a contemporary artist. Taking place on the plaza’s concourse level, the program will be led by Joana Avillez, illustrator of Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl”and the creator of an illustrated holiday map of Rockefeller Center. Young participants — the recommended ages are 5 and older — will use felt-tip pens to make sketches of ice-skaters and passers-by; some of their drawings will be selected for a public exhibition later this month at Fort Gansevoort.
