For centuries artists have created visual stories as a means of education, entertainment, and cultural preservation. Back by popular demand, award-winning artist and educator Becky Frehse will guide participants in creating a mixed-media collage art piece that will capture your story. Participants will have the opportunity to gain inspiration by viewing the museum’s newly opened Haub Family Galleries of Western American Art. Cost: $40 ($30 for members). Teachers can earn up to three clock hours by attending the workshop. Pre-registration is required; click here to register.
