Art Lab (for all ages)

Second Saturdays of the month
Labs begin at 10:30am and end at noon

Free for everyone. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited.

Each month (September - May), participants will be introduced to one of the Museum's exhibitions in a fun, entertaining and accessible manner through hands-on learning for all ages and skills. Labs are led by professional artists or art educators whom will engage participants in creating their own piece of artwork through a wide array of art mediums, techniques and connecting conversations relating to a specific exhibition on display in the Museum.


September 23: Figurative Art
Instructor: Rick Olivo

Join Lakeland artist Rick Olivo for a hands-on look into the current Museum exhibition “The Figure in American Art". In this ArtLab, Olivo will guide participants, of all ages and skill, through the technical world of representational art . Learn rendering - the skill of adding color, shading, and texturing to create an image. Tap into your learned skills through the use of acrylic paint, to master your own representational piece during the Lab.
