Workshops

Want to experiment with new media and art techniques in the museum? Join us!
We offer workshops one Saturday each month all year round, with new artistic practices and exhibitions to explore. 

Saturday workshops combine gallery experiences with art making in the studio. Guided by a teaching artist, participants explore works of art in the museum and then get the chance to create their own artworks using a wide variety of media and techniques, from traditional to digital.

Selected Saturdays, 11:00–4:00
$10 members, $12 nonmembers
Registration required; please use the link below each program to register.

On Your Mark: Mixed-Media Workshop
11:00–4:00
We think we live in a fast-paced world now, but people have felt that way for decades. The exhibition Go shows how artists in the 1900s expressed the rapid pace of their own time. In collaboration with teaching artists from Design Dance, view pieces in the exhibition while exploring movement, poetry, and painting to create your own mixed media work of art. 
Registration opens on April 1, 2017.

June 10
Change the Frame: Photography Workshop
11:00–4:00
Robert Frank has spent decades photographing scenes of everyday American life. See the world through his eyes in the exhibition Robert Frank: Photos Books Films. Then, learn a new photo technique and showcase your skills as you work with an artist to create photographic images of things that matter to you. Cameras will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own.
Registration opens on May 1, 2017.
