GMA’s Art Play

Yesterday marked the first of many new and exciting things happening at the GMA.


 

 

We have updated and renovated our children’s area, now named GMA Art Play, under the direction of our new Education and Outreach Coordinator, Jill Edwards.

 

 

Kids can create their own cubist faces in the style of Pablo Picasso.

 

 

 

We have widened our demographic to include all age children and altered the available activities to be centered around art.

 

 

A pop art mural in the style of Keith Haring lets kids pose to mimic the art.

 

 

 

 

Artist-themed activities feature homage to Kandinsky, Picasso, Haring, Hirst, and Warhol.

 

 

 

 

This summer we will be offering two weeks of summer camps for students grades 1-7. Registration is now open.

 

Jill details the renovations for guests at the Art Play grand opening on May 2nd.

 

Additional upcoming events this summer at the GMA include a photography class, small group private art lessons, and more. Official dates and times are to be announced.

 

The GMA is proud to introduce its new Education and Outreach Coordinator, Jill Edwards.
