Studio

Visit our multimedia art studio to let your creative vision loose and learn new art forms through open-ended art activities and artist-led workshops.

Our new accessible pottery wheel adjusts to all visitors, including young children, children sitting on adults' laps, left-handed users, and people using wheelchairs and other mobility assistance devices.

Studio closes at 4:30 pm daily.

Daily Activities

  • Painting at kid-sized easels (smocks help minimize the creative impact)
  • Making a free-form clay sculpture using a variety of shaping tools
  • Creating a screen-printed poster using cut newspaper to define the shapes and words you ink onto paper at silkscreen beds
