Revisit timeless locations known by heart—your home, a childhood realm of imagination, or a memorable faraway place—and translate a sense of its setting into visual representations that celebrate more than record. Through the use of mixed media, reconstruct memories of a significant place as a visual map. Consider the elements of art and principles of design while building numerous collage techniques to achieve artistic liberty!

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
