Making Art Together

New Public Art Project - Watercolor Portraits

We're gearing up for the new Public Art Project in The Art Studio and we can't wait to see visitors "Swish, Dab and Wiggle" some paint around! Here's Looking at You is set for August 11 - September 13, 2011, free with Museum Admission. Create a portrait of yourself or a friend. A variety of drawing tools, watercolor paints and mirrors will be on hand to help you capture every expression. Have you ever made a portrait of yourself or a friend using watercolor paints? Stop by and give it a try!



We enjoy exploring materials and ideas in the Art Studio, and we’re excited to share our process with you! Please consider the following factors when adapting these posts for your learning environment: 

We facilitate a variety of programs within the Art Studio for a wide range of age groups. Please carefully consider the age appropriateness of each individual activity in your own learning environment.

Our projects are always done with adult supervision and proper safety precautions. Be sure all of your projects are overseen by adults who likewise follow proper safety precautions. The adults overseeing your project must also be responsible for handling or assisting with any potentially harmful equipment or materials.
