Enjoy a day off school making art in the Studio. Children ages 6–12 will explore our exhibitions as inspiration for learning techniques in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed-media art.

Inspired by the exhibition, Rome, Capital of Paintingcampers will explore the allure of antique Roman vases, drawing their own with a surprising twist. As new discoveries in history bring colorful new ideas to light, students will use “resist” and “block-out” methods to draw, paint, and chip away at the surface of their creations to reveal beautiful colors and patterns beneath, with artist and educator Natasha Jabre.

Natasha Jabre is a representational painter whose work highlights the strangeness of everyday situations using symbolism and surreal lighting. She received her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and her MFA from The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Her artwork has recently been exhibited in Canada and the United States, as well as internationally in Berlin, Italy, Lebanon, and Spain.
