Get in touch with your intuition in this program that unites visual and literary expression. In the exhibition Matthew Wong: The Realm of Appearances, poet Beth Honeycutt will lead you through a poetry-writing activity, while in the Art Studio, artists from The Art Room will guide you in creating a work of neurographic art that explores the mind-body connection as a method to illustrate and transform your inner world.
This program is drop-in and seating is first come, first served.
Please note that this program is geared toward adults. Families interested in creating together should see our Open Studio program.
