Families with children ages six and up are invited to look, learn, and create together in this hands-on workshop inspired by the UMMA exhibition Copies and Invention in East Asia. Visit the exhibition—which looks at the practice of copying in art making and includes works from China, Korea, and Japan, spanning ancient to contemporary times—and create an original art work with the potential to become many. Led by local artist and long-time UMMA docent Susan Clinthorne.
Parents must accompany children. We cannot guarantee your spot if you arrive more than 15 minutes late.
