Event Description

Let your creativity blossom! Join Carter Community Artist Brenda Ciardiello on a nature adventure as we investigate botanicals, sow seeds, and create a collaborative garden artwork inspired by Natasha Bowdoin’s exhibition In the Night Garden. Work together as a family to mix custom watercolors, examine botanical shapes and forms, and create vibrant “sun catcher” paintings in this hands-on workshop.  

Family Workshops are a quarterly program designed for children 6 to 12 years old and their families. Join us on Zoom to look, learn, create, and collaborate!
