Artists at Work
See art take shape right before your eyes and get the chance to witness an artist’s creative process first hand. Artists from all over the world visit the DAM and create their work on-site.
Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Space
Drop by the Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Studio (level 3 North Building) this winter to meet Chumash basketmaker Linda Aguilar, watch demonstrations, and participate in hands-on basketmaking activities.
Stop by our first floor studio space in the Hamilton Building to see artists at work and take part in artmaking opportunities. The theme of this space is ever-changing so be sure to check out what the artists are demonstrating today.
Through April 13, 2014, the Drawing Studio will help visitors explore the creative processes behind assorted drawing techniques. And visitors of all skill levels will be able to try working with graphite, chalk, crayons, ink, and other other media. On weekends, artists will be conducting drawing demonstrations.
Free with general admission. No reservations required.
Insider Moments are informal conversations with artists who are exhibiting at the DAM. These talks happen occasionally, as opportunity allows, so check back for upcoming chats. Upcoming Insider Moments will appear in the Related Exhibitions & Events box on this page.
This year's Native Arts Artist-in-Residence is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
