Pop Up Studio

The PMA Pop Up Studio transforms a visit to the PMA from one that is based primarily in the observation of art to one that is also based in the creation of art, giving you the opportunity to stand at an artist’s easel, to experience the limitless possibilities of mixing colors, and the chance to breathe life into whatever inspiration you discover in the galleries.

Members of PMA staff will be available to offer suggestions and encouragement for those who would like it.
