Spring 2018

Taking Part in Making Art

Museum visitors of all ages and abilities often seek art-making experiences as a way to deepen their understanding of objects in the collections and exhibitions, to connect with their creativity and to experiment with art media.

Gilcrease’s new Drop-in Studio program provides opportunities to explore various materials, processes and concepts under the guidance of a teaching artist on three Sundays each month from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Creative Learning Center.

Recently, Drop-in Studio participants explored watercolor techniques, innovative collage processes and different pen and ink styles. Future visitors to the Drop-in Studio program can try their hand at additive printmaking processes in April, discover and apply color relationships in May and learn how to carve three-dimensional works in June.

Come by with friends or family to develop your skills, find inspiration and create your own work of art. No registration is necessary. The program is free for members and free with museum admission for all others.

A list of Drop-in Studio dates may be found on our events calendar. We look forward to seeing your masterpiece!
