Join museum educators as we use colored pencil on scratch-foam to create our very own botanical prints that mimic the organic shapes of the natural world. Ornaments and Other Refrigerator MagnetsCMA is pleased to announce Ellen Harvey: Ornaments and Other Refrigerator Magnets, a solo exhibition in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery that brings together a selection of Harvey’s new and recent works. In this workshop museum visitors will design and create their very own ornamental brooches and badges! Note: The Clay Bar is one of our busiest stations, so sign up upon arrival is required.
Children are able to experiment with play-dough, drawing, painting, building, gluing, music, drumming and story-time. Inspired by concept art and the processes of artists at Pixar and Disney, young artists will learn illustration techniques and use them to develop their own unique characters. We’re offering over 35 creative camps this summer at CMA. Explore art of ancient times, 3D printing, modern masters and more. Create your own miniature clothesline out of textile rubbings using colored construction paper, assorted textured fabric scraps, and soft pastels.
