  • October 14: Surrealism - Play the Surrealist-invented parlor game “Exquisite Corpse” in the galleries by drawing parts and features of human and animal forms, then assembling a figure as a group.
  • November 11: Art and Text - Select a proverb that resonates with you, find a subject in the Modern & Contemporary galleries that relates to it and assemble a composition that reveals your interpretation of the text.
  • December 9: Silver & Gold - Get tips for drawing decorative, metallic designs and surfaces in the new exhibit Glitterati: Portraits & Jewels from Colonial Latin America.
