Time: 06:00 PM–09:00 PM

This spring, the Walters’ popular Make Night workshops focus on the art of Renaissance painting and highlight the special exhibition A Renaissance Original: Carlo Crivelli. Each class begins with a free drink and a visit to the galleries, where you will find inspiration for the evening’s art-making activity led by artist Lance Moore. Get creative and make a drawing in the style of a Renaissance master, then bring your drawing back for the next two Make Night sessions (Pigments & Colors on April 21 and Using Egg Tempera on May 7) to create your own luminous tempera painting.
