Art in the Afternoon

Second and fourth Wednesdays of the month
2:00 pm
3:30 pm

MAM invites older adults to join us either in-person or virtually for an artistic social gathering each second and fourth Wednesday of the month (November dates will be 11/10 and 11/17). Participants will enjoy an opportunity to learn about and creatively respond to art from the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Each session will feature a virtual docent-led tour and engaging conversation followed by thematically related art activities. All registrants will receive information about attending in person and virtually using Zoom, so they can choose how they would like to participate.

Project inspired by Color Riot! and Navajo textiles on view at MAM. Play with the art of symmetry and geometry by using fabric squares on different surfaces. 

Materials for virtual: fabric or paper (recycled) cut into geometric shapes, glue or mod podge and brush, jar to work on.

This program is free, but registration is required.
