Join us for an afternoon of painting fun for the whole family!  This special paint workshop is a great parent child bonding opportunity and makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift, too.  To start we’ll get experimental as we try out mark marking by painting without brushes.  Engaging materials like feathers, and bubble wrap will be used to create movement, pattern and lines.  We’ll also paint our own masterworks as our teaching artist leads us through a beautiful birch tree landscape painting created on canvas board.

A discounted Family gift membership for participants of the family paint workshop. Normally $85, for this workshop only, we can offer it for just $60. A Family Membership means free admission for two adults and two children or grandchildren under age 18, and comes with other benefits like 10% off in our Museum shop, and special Members-Only programs.
