Drop-in Art Activities: Paint me a Story

In April, roll up your sleeves and put on your smocks as we explore paint together! We'll take a close look at paintings from the special exhibition, New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville, and learn how to use paint in brand new ways to tell our own stories. Prime your puzzle and add pigment to your portraits using big bristles, glistening glazes and painterly pastels. Use art to paint a picture and share the story of who you are!

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 and visit often to participate in a different project each weekend!
