Following a guided tour, students will respond creatively to the artworks they've seen at the Galleries with a hands-on art-making workshop. This is a great opportunity to work under the guidance of an educator with expertise in the visual arts, giving students a chance to explore their creativity, experiment with unusual materials, and learn new techniques to create works of art. All students will produce a project they can take home with them.
