PMA Family Days: "The Pencil Experiment"

PMA Family Days: "The Pencil Experiment"

Using the exhibition Masterworks on Paper: Highlights from the Portland Museum of Art as inspiration, explore the many ways that pencil and paper can interact. Create art that is big or small, in 2-D or 3-D, and realistic or abstract. We’ll provide materials, inspirational prompts, and instruction for kids and caregivers to make your own masterwork on paper to take home. Look, listen, and share during all-ages gallery talks.
