Creative Processing is a 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 with a focus on process and exploration.
This hour-long virtual workshop explores Yayoi Kusama’s Light of Life to start a conversation about our sense of self and the many ways we experience identity. Participants will have time for a guided exploration of art-making processes to create their own reflective work of art as a family.
Space is limited; reserve a spot by clicking the ticketing link. The first 30 participants can choose to receive a special kit of art materials! Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
