Discovery Room Art Activities
October 19, 2019 - January 12, 2020

Foam Printmaking
Be inspired by the incredible artworks in our feature exhibition Sybil Andrews: Art and Life and try your hand at creating your own relief print using a foam base and pencil. Use a roller and print ink to transfer your image onto paper and be amazed at the printmaking process!

Ready-Made Artworks
Check out our feature exhibition ExtraOrdinary Objects and transform the ordinary into extraordinary by using ready-made objects as the base for a thought provoking artwork. Add a variety of materials such as cellophane and tape to create a new version of your object, and evaluate it using the four Cs: Creativity, Composition, Communication and Craftsmanship.

Explorations in Art
Put on your exploration cap and follow the clues in the latest versions of our art scavenger hunt. We have many new galleries to explore, so take your pick! Return your completed sheet to the Discovery Room for a prize. Fun for the whole family!

Art du Jour

Saturdays and Sundays
Look for our special blue Art du Jour labels next to singular artworks on our second floor to catch a ten minute art discussion led by our knowledgeable Discovery Room Educators. Several of these spontaneous tours will be offered per day on Saturdays and Sundays, so keep your eyes peeled!
