On the first Sunday of the month, join a professional artist to explore the galleries followed by a hands on workshop inspired by the objects in the exhibition. This program is suitable for ages 6 and up.At MAD, our goal is to make everyone feel comfortable and enthusiastic about the opportunity to learn through their hands while having a good time together in our galleries and studio.
This intergenerational workshop will focus on actively engaging with the exhibition, "Playing with Fire". There will be fun and thought-provoking discussions on how to interpret and translate the exterior/interior world of glass, by looking at different glass processes and techniques throughout the exhibition.
Participants will explore sculpture through a tactile lens and hands on workshop, making exhibition inspired sculptures. How do the artists play with fire to create their work? What role does gravity play in making glass art? How do the interior and exterior effect one other? How does color change our perceptions? What does the specific medium affect our emotions?
The tour and workshop will be appropriate for participants as young as six years old.
