Creative Processing is a new series for families to reflect together on big (and sometimes tough) ideas about the world and ourselves through art. Workshops include guided group conversations about works of art from the NCMA collection, as well as hands-on art-making projects.
How have you experienced injustice? How have you stood up for others? This hourlong virtual workshop explores Soundsuit by Nick Cave to start a conversation about racial and social injustice and unfairness around us. Participants also have time for guided exploration of art-making processes to create their own wearable work of art.
Space is limited; reserve your spot by emailing Courtney Klemens. Please specify the number of participants in your group.
