UPCOMING THIRD SATURDAYS 

Drawing with Art Dice
Saturday, February 20 | 14 pm | FREE
Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium (Room 1151)
Many artists draw every day to hone their skills-sometimes making a game to spark their creativity. Make your own game by decorating dice with visual cues, and then roll the dice to randomly suggest artistic elements as you create your own drawing.  

Abstract Portraits
Saturday, March 19 | 14 pm | FREE
Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium (Room 1151)
Traditional African artists are masters at creating dramatic masks, portraits, and faces using basic geometric shapes. Find inspiration from African masks in our Education Collection to create your own portrait using simple shapes.

Shadow Puppets
Saturday, April 16 | 14 pm | FREE
Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium (Room 1151)
Shadow puppets are a beautiful storytelling art form from Bali. Puppets from the Education Collection will offer inspiration as you craft your own shadow puppet. Flashlights will be on-hand to bring your puppet to life.

Torn Paper Landscapes
Saturday, May 21 | 14 pm | FREE
Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium (Room 1151)
Artists have incorporated paper in their art making for centuries. Using torn paper and colored chalk, let the natural environment around you inspire your landscape creation.

Russian Nesting Dolls
Saturday, June 18 | 14 pm | FREE
Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium (Room 1151)
The Russian folk art of vibrant, colorful Matryoshka dolls dates back to 1890. Let our traditional Matryoshka set be the inspiration to decorate your own set of nesting dolls.
