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.
