Workshops for People with Parkinson’s and their Care-partners
April 20, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm$10.00
Workshop by the Philadelphia Museum of Art Accessible Programs for People with Parkinson’s Disease and their Care Partners
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.
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!
Workshops are designed for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners and include a 1-hour private guided tour and 2-hour studio experience with 1/2 hour break for lunch. The fee is $10.00 per person. Care partners and personal attendants are admitted free. Click here for a brochure!
