The Phillips Plays: Have fun viewing, discussing, and making art together
Join us to investigate materials, methods, and ideas in art. During each two-hour program, we will look, wonder, and learn with a museum educator in the exhibition An Italian Impressionist in Paris: Giuseppe De Nittis. Then, in the studio, a teaching artist will guide families to create artwork inspired by the gallery exploration. Each session will focus on a different artwork and art technique.
November 19, 11:30 am-1:30 pm or 2:30-4:30 pm: The Phillips Travels
Artists often use sketchbooks for documenting their journeys, exploring ideas, and drafting compositions. After looking at Giuseppe De Nittis’s paintings that depict his travels, we will make a sketchbook to take with us on our own journeys. We will marble paper for the cover using shaving cream and liquid watercolor.
