Through this special PMA Family Day about the art, craft, history, and science of photography, learn about historical chemical processes that can be used to capture and print images. Experiment with “handwork” to enhance printed photographs with pencil marks to add color, texture, and contrast. Finally, take everything you’ve learned into the exhibition Clarence H. White and His World: The Art and Craft of Photography, 1895- 1925 to see all of these amazing techniques in action.

Join us for an exciting day of storytelling and art-making when our Winslow Homer High School Fellows lead children and families on their tour of the paintings and prints by Winslow Homer, one of Maine’s most beloved artists. Take inspiration from close looking at Homer’s paintings and etchings, before drawing, writing, and coloring away to create your story! The Homer High School Fellows are a cohort of teens hired by the PMA each summer to create new opportunities for youth engagement while learning about Homer’s life and work.
