Step into the PMA Art Studio and unleash your creativity! Participants are invited to join us for Open Studio between 11:00 and 12:30 to explore and experiment with a variety of media and art forms inspired by artists and movements. Each project is suitable for all ages and abilities. An Art Educator will be on site to provide assistance with using tools and the creation of individual art. Occurs on the second and fourth Saturday’s of the month.
July 24: This week we are inspired by Katsushika Hokusai, Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo Period (1603 – 1867). Hokusai is best known for the woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji which includes the internationally iconic print The Great Wave off Kanagawa. His work is featured in our current exhibition, End of Century, among many fellow artists of the Art Nouveau and Impressionism movements. Participants will create a variation of a Japanese woodblock print using relief techniques, collage, and watercolor.
$12 for adults, and $10 for children under 13. Includes Museum Admission!
