February Art for All: Foil Relief Sculpture

February's Art for All project is inspired by the cast iron stoves on view in the Masterworks: 225 Years of Collecting exhibition.  Create your own raised (embossed) designs inspired by the patterning on the cast iron stoves on view.  We'll create our designs by gluing shapes onto a base board and then cover it with aluminum foil for a metal work effect.

March Art for All: Marbled Paper Butterflies

March's Art for All project is inspired by the Karner blue butterfly.  Take a look at the objects and information about the Karner blue, and its special habitat of the Albany Pine Bush in our Capital Region in 50 objects exhibit, and make your own butterfly to take home.  We’ll create beautiful swirled blue patterns for our butterflies’ wings using a marbled paper technique with shaving cream and paint.
