Lush Landscapes and Splendid Scenes

Location: Ames Family Atrium

About The Event

Every third Saturday of each month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session will provide you the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create. Explore a related selection of authentic objects from the CMA’s education art collection in a pop-up Art up Close session. See, think, and wonder. 

Artists in northwest India created immersive paintings that convey the mood of the city’s palaces, lakes, and mountains. Draw inspiration from the royal paintings of Udaipur and collaborate with artist and illustrator Santosh Bhandari on creating a large-scale lush landscape filled with fun, fantasy, and your own splendid scenes.
