Family First: Create An Art Puzzle

Ages 5 & up
  • About This Program

    Create your own puzzle with teaching artist Kimberly Turner!

    Grab the entire family and join teaching artist Kimberly Turner to create your very own art puzzles inspired by multimedia artist Mickalene Thomas! For this fun workshop, we will use bright colors and bold patterns to create our unique interpretation of Thomas’ style, followed by a careful carving of our creations into puzzle pieces. You will have the chance to show your work at the end of the workshop (optional). Amaze your friends and family with your very own homemade puzzle!

    This workshop is open to all ages and experience levels. Although the supply list below allows you to get the full experience, please feel free to join us with any supplies you have available.
