FAMILY FIRST WORKSHOPS

PAPER BOAT ARMADA
For this shortened workshop, we’ll begin by making a nautical scene inspired by Lyonel Feininger’s Rainbow II (1928) and conclude with a swim in the historic 1930s pool.
SIMPLE SHAPES SILKSCREEN
Think about rhythm and shape as you prepare stencils for a simple, two-color screen printing project. All participants will learn how to pull a print with a screen and make several prints using their own stencils.
CUT AND CREATE COLLAGE
North Carolina-born artist Romare Bearden worked magic with scissors and paper, to create scenes and images. In this workshop visit his jazzy Alto Composite (1974) and create your own collage with various provided papers.
HOLIDAY TOUR AND
In addition to learning a little about holidays at Reynolda, visitors will explore holiday paintings and magazine covers created year after year by illustrator J.C. Leyendecker.
