Add some color to a snowy winter! Explore, create, and have fun this December in School Vacation Week Workshops at Danforth Art! We’re offering three day art-making workshops from December 28 to 30 for children in grades K-8. Morning or afternoon sessions are available, or register for both sessions and make it a full day! Kids will enjoy fun, winter-themed art projects and topics like "Ice Age Animals" and "Skates, Sleds, and Skis" while learning important art skills. Teens (grades 9-12) may choose from "Figure and Portrait Drawing" or "Wheelthrowing."
Join us this fall at Danforth Art for thought-provoking events and programs. Read up and join our book club on November 7 to discuss The Girl You Left Behind. Explore themes of war and remembrance in events inspired by Dear Dearest Mother: Leslie Starobin’s Wartime Still Life Montages, and hear from artists with works featured in the New England Photography Biennial about their work, media, and process.
If you were tasked with transforming one volume of an illustrated children’s encyclopedia into art, would you be inspired by the book as an object of learning, by its fonts and pictures, or by the content in its pages? Come view "The Whole World For Your Children": Artists’ Reinterpretations of the 1934 Britannica Junior and see how area artists created contemporary and imaginative interpretations of a very special set of books. Made from volumes of this historic encyclopedia, these diverse works invite you to consider it as both a transmitter of information and an art object.
