This workshop, a collaboration between the Walters Art Museum and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, emphasizes the intersection of art and history in Baltimore. At the Lewis museum, students will visit the exhibition Romare Bearden: Visionary Artist, and then try their hands at creating works of art. After lunch, students will explore the Walters’ 19th-century mansion 1 West Mount Vernon Place, learning about the building’s history, its connections, and the people who lived and worked in the house—both paid and enslaved.
This workshop is designed exclusively for homeschool students ages 5-6. Participants enjoy an introduction to the museum, a guided tour, and studio activity.
