Second Sunday Art Activity: August 2022

August 14, 2022 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Join us for August’s Second Sunday Art Activity:
Transfer Printing Inspired by EJ Hauser

This month, we are taking inspiration from EJ Hauser’s The Primary Forest Pocket currently on view in Currents: Women Artists from the KMA Collection. Visitors will explore transfer printing using materials like pencils, markers, and bubble wrap. Using primary colors, we will transform our drawings into a literal  “pocket” for nature treasures. Hauser’s sketches came from her experience/memories whereas our visitors are creating memories that they can take with them. FREE and open to the public!
