We had a lot of enthusiastic visitors collaborating on our two elephant sculptures this past weekend. Take a look at the photos, below, to see the great progress we made together. If you missed this past weekend, there is still a lot of work to do – please join us in the Learning Center at the Museum this Friday from 6-9pm or Saturday from 12-4 to learn how to work with papier-mâché and wood and to contribute your mark to this exciting community art project. The workshop is free with museum admission.
About the Art StudioTaking an art class in the DIA's beautiful new Art Studio in the new Wayne and Joan Webber Education Wing is a unique opportunity in our region. As one of the only art museums in the country with a group of professional teaching artists on staff, we offer our visitors extraordinary hands-on art-making experiences. Additionally, having one of the country's finest collections of art as a resource adds a dimension to our classes that simply can't be found elsewhere.
