Workshop for Ages 7-10: Art Club – Nature Paintbrushes

May 12, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The natural world provides artists with so much inspiration for art-making! In this live workshop we’ll use materials found in nature to make our own paintbrushes—we’ll use our homemade brushes to explore mark-making and texture.

This workshop uses materials commonly found at home.

Please have these items on hand:
gathered natural materials*
sticks or chopsticks (one per brush)
rubber bands
poster paint

*Pre-workshop Prep: Please have your natural materials gathered in advance. Go on a walk with an adult or explore your own backyard. Search for a variety of natural materials–leaves, feathers, twigs, flowers and pine needles all work great.

Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh believes that cost should never be a barrier to inspiring kindness, joy, creativity and curiosity. We offer a sliding ticket price model to accommodate all learners.

Registration deadline is May 10, 2021. Register here.
