Making Art Together

Signing Day

I wanted to share some great photos from Eric Carle's signing at The Museum last Saturday! Hundreds of people came out to meet Eric and get their books signed.

Laurie, Meghan and Aiyi helped guests make art in the Art Studio. READ MORE

Introducing Laurie

I want to introduce our second intern, Laurie Mills who will be assisting us in the Studio this summer. She's had a few weeks to work with us and below she wrote a little more about her experience so far. Welcome Laurie! READ MORE

Introducing Aiyi

This summer we are happy to have Aiyi Zhang assisting us in the Studio. She just started last week, so she's still fairly new to all that we do here, but getting the hang of it quickly. She'll be helping with planning upcoming classes and Public Art Programs this summer and orienting guests who want to work with the art materials. Welcome Aiyi!
