Makerspace: Mindful Abstraction with Artist Jenny Pickens
Drop into our Studio to experiment freely and collaborate using different materials, tools, and techniques! We encourage attendees to visit a chosen artwork in the galleries for inspiration, then head to the studio to create. All ages and abilities are welcome (children must be accompanied by an adult).
February’s Mindful Abstraction Makerspace invites visitors to practice the art of abstraction, inspired by the on-view exhibition, American Art in the Atomic Age. Create mindful abstract drawings using a variety of media, inspired by the Neurographic Art style.
