Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 20 participants.
Each month (September to May), participants will be introduced to one of the Museum’s exhibitions in a fun and accessible, hands-on learning experience for all ages. Labs are led by professional artists or art educators who guide participants in creating their own artwork. Using a array of mediums and techniques, the project will relate to an exhibition on display in the Museum.
This month's Art Lab will compliment the current exhibition Conversing with Reality, led by the artist himself, John Jacopelle.
