Zimmerli Saturday Sparks - Adult Art Workshops

Impression Collage

Saturday, October 24 - 10:00-11:30am

In this workshop led by Wes Sherman, you'll explore various techniques for rubbings to capture different textures and forms, and then use those to create a collage.

Watercolors: At Sea

Saturday, November 14 from 11:00-1:30pm

In this workshop led by Tom Rutledge, you'll advance your watercolor skills as you create your own interpretation of a nautical scene from the Zimmerli’s collection.

Art Together - Free Family Art Class

First Saturdays, November 7 and December 5 - 10:00-11:00am

Register for access to the program at this link. (Registration accepted up to program start time.)

It’s Art Together time again and we’re excited to get creative with you and your family! For the November session, we will look at a few different works in the Zimmerli’s collection to give you inspiration as we work together to make our own cut-paper collages. For this project, you will need several pieces of construction paper (different colors if possible), scissors, and glue or a glue stick. You can include some magazine pages, but those are optional.

Artists of all ages are welcome, but this session will be best suited for those ages 6-13, and their grown-ups.

As always, Art Together is free and you can stay as long as you like. Details for December's project will be posted soon!

Can’t join us at that time? The program will be recorded and shared on our Zimmerli At Home site to watch whenever works best for your family.


All listed times are Eastern time zone. Recorded programs will be archived in the Videos section of this site.
