"Lines in Nature" Free Family Art-Making Workshop

  • Santa Barbara Museum of Art Family Resource Center 1130 State Street Santa Barbara, CA, 93101 United States (map)

Inspired by Leaves of Grass featured in the 2018 State of the Art Gallery Exhibition  

Join us for a Free Family Art-Making Workshop with artist Pattie Porter Firestone focused on the sculpture Leaves of Grass. Using Walt Whitman’s poem as inspiration, the whole family will use colored strips of card paper to depict nature in three-dimensions. We will simplify the forms we see in nature and illustrate the forces of nature moving in those forms. Come have fun cutting and gluing colored strips of cardboard to create your own work of art.
