Drop-in Art Activities: People & Portraits


Sunday, August 8, 2010Sunday, August 29, 2010


10:00 AM–03:00 PM on Saturday, Sunday

Strike a pose! This month we are exploring the expressions, symbols, and stories behind hundreds of years of portraiture. Put a spin on self portraits when you make a mirror of yourself, paint a story about yourself sprinkled with secret clues, and create a silly sculpture of someone who is important to you!

8/7-8/8 – Mirror Images
8/14-8/15 –Story Portrait Paintings
8/21-8/22 – Superhero Sculptures
8/28-8/29 – Shadows & Silhouettes

Drop-in Art Activities happen every Saturday and Sunday! No registration required – drop-in, make, and take a fantastic piece of art home with you! Join museum educators as they help families create artful projects related to the collection, special exhibitions, and family programs. Check out our monthly themes! Recommended for ages 3 and up and their families.
