All ages will enjoy our family art projects. Work on a new project each week. Try your hand working with a variety of art mediums — all materials supplied. Child and grown-up friendly! 


Animal Story Collages

Inspired by Nathan Budoff’s mixed media works in Vivarium: Exploring Intersections of Art, Storytelling, and the Resilience of the Living World, we will create narrative collages using photocopies, colored pens and chalk pastel. This project will specifically focus on endangered and extinct species so it is equally educational as it is creative!

Instructor: Harley Kirschner


Framed Portraits
This Family Art Workshop we are appreciating the antique decorative frames in Making American Artists: Stories from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, 1776-1976. The frames are almost a work of art itself! Draw any scene you like, landscape, portrait, or something imagined and create your own beautiful frame ready to display in a gallery.

Instructor:  Remy Sinegal
