The magic word is collaboration: explore together to discover the world through art, play fun gallery games, and create your own masterpieces in the studio.

This spring, surprise yourself with unique combinations and transformations in art, new and old. In March, we’ll investigate how artists such as Zhang Hongtu and Hew Locke transform familiar objects into something new. And in April, explore the newly opened Arts of Buddhism galleries as well as the work of Baseera Khan, then imagine and create your own transformations.

Wearable Art: 11 am–12:30 pm
Art Now: 2–3:30 pm
Three sessions (one adult, one child): $81.75, Members $76.50
This winter, discover how artists see themselves and the world around them. In the morning sessions, we'll explore how artists such as Christian Dior create imaginative things to wear, and then together we'll create our own wearable art. In the afternoons, get a view through the eyes of the artists featured in The Slipstream: Reflection, Resilience, and Resistance in the Art of Our Time, and then make your own art to show us how you would change the world.

Fall: Larger Than Life / Small Scale, Big Impact
Fall I (October): Sundays, October 17, 24, and 31, 2021, 2–3:30 pm
Fall II (November): Sundays, November 7, 14, and 21, 2021, 2–3:30 pm
This fall, we’ll think about objects big and small as we explore art throughout our galleries. This semester has two parts; join us for one half or stay for all six sessions! In October, we'll look at the larger-than-life portraits and sculptures by Kehinde Wiley and KAWS, then create our own large-scale installation together. In November, we'll focus on small-scale objects through a scavenger hunt in our Luce Center for American Art, and create a mini museum to take home.
