This six-week session will draw inspiration from Ogden Museum’s exhibitions, Built: Sculptural Art from the Permanent Collection and Preservative Force: Recent Acquisitions to the Collection. Artists investigated will include Mel Chin, William Dunlap, Lin Emery, George Dureau and Robert Tannen. Museum Educator Mikhayla Harrell will be live on Zoom to guide you through deep art observation, critical thinking, art making procedures and mindfulness practices.
