PMA Family Day: "Picturing Places"

PMA Family Day: "Picturing Places"

Today is all about imagining, locating, and constructing places.

Learn how to incorporate architecture into your art with guest artist Gideon Bok, an artist in You Can't Get There From Here: The 2015 PMA Biennial. In our Pop-Up Studio, you can draw places from memory, use observational skills and sketch the PMA gallery spaces, or design an imaginary place. Gather tips from Gideon on how to use perspective to make your drawings look realistic. Observe Gideon as he creates a large-scale architectural drawing throughout the day.

Pick up a sketching board and navigate your way through the museum to locate works of art based on a series of prompts. At the end, you’ll have a visual map of places near and far. 

Look, listen, and share during all-ages gallery talks. Do you still have tots in the stroller? Try out our new sensory art cards, which provide developmentally appropriate prompts for even the youngest visitors.
