Workshops for People with Parkinson’s and their Care-partners

April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10.00

Workshop by the Philadelphia Museum of Art Accessible Programs for People with Parkinson’s Disease and their Care Partners

“Waterlogged”

Tour

Participants will tour the special exhibition “American Watercolor in the Age of Homer and Sargent.” This extraordinary gathering of rarely seen masterpieces traces the rise of a uniquely American medium. Shaped by the genius of Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent, the watercolor movement tells a story about innovation, experimentation, and the creation of bold new ways of seeing the world.

Experience one of the country’s great artistic legacies through stunning landscapes and illustrations, and designs for ceramics and stained glass.

Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn various watercolor techniques used by artists to create luminous works on paper.  Instruction will include playful wet and dry techniques such as “blossoms”, “cling Film” and “scumbling.” After a bit of practice, you will create a series of unique personal greeting cards…yes, not a text or an email…real cards!
