Second Saturdays: Be Abstract

August 8, 2015 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Second Saturdays: Be Abstract

Abstract art is hard to define, but it’s imaginative, radical, and free! Get your inspiration from Abstract Expressionists like Jackson Pollock and make your own abstract and expressive work. Listen to world music by Jordan Critchley and express yourself in sound at a drum circle!

Second Saturdays for Families: Explore art with your family, encourage creativity, and expand your imagination through conversation and discovery. Each program is free and includes hands-on art projects, tours for families, live music, and engaging fun through film, theater and dance. Join us the second Saturday of every month year-round!
