Art together is about families making, sharing, and having fun together in the galleries and classroom. Each workshop is a unique hands-on experience that links art making to one of our special exhibitions. Artworks inspire exploration of a wide variety of art techniques and materials. Whether you attend one workshop or participate in the whole series, we encourage you and your family to join ours and make Art Together.
Create decorative papers, cards and tags for all occasions using a variety of techniques from stamping and stenciling to embroidery. We’ll take a quick visit to the galleries in search of colorful patterns to inspire us.
Create miniature works of art perfect for exchanging with friends and loved ones—just as the artworks in the special exhibition, Disembodied: Portrait Miniatures and their Contemporary Relatives, were originally used. Our mementos will be made on sheets of plastic then shrunk to miniature size. We’ll even fashion fancy frames or boxes to hold our treasures.
Screens from the exhibition Remaking Tradition: Modern Art of Japan and the CMA’s own collection will be the inspiration for our own tabletop versions. Watercolor paintings will adorn our paper mounted frames.
