Make & Take Art Kit: Gris’s Golden Ratio

This event has already passed Location: Hamon Entrance

Familiarize yourself with the working methods of Spanish artist Juan Gris with this kit that will lead you through creating a still-life painting. With help from the mathematical principle known as the "golden ratio," you will think through the geometric underpinnings of your composition in preparation for your final work.

Kits are free and include printed instructions. Reserved kits will be available for pick-up at the Flora Street Entrance from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. When picking up a kit, stay in your car and a DMA staff member will place the kit in your trunk.
