The North Carolina Museum of Art

Seniors

Take a leisurely look at the Museum’s collection through informal gallery discussions and studio experiences specially designed for seniors. Discover how artists capture the likeness of a person, enhance the surface of an object, or bring balance to a sculpture. You’ll even have a chance to sample a technique or two.

"Every session—a new vision, a new appreciation, a new experience…" —MarLynn Brock, a frequent Senior Sampler participant
