Travel from the East Coast to the West Coast without leaving the room! Take a tour of Compass for Surveyors: 19th Century American Landscapes.
Create your own scenic art, in the following workshops—you can even make a compass!
Maps and Compasses with artist Marianne Sadowski
Make a compass and add it to a map of the United States during the 19th century. Participants will make the map their own work by adding their own drawings.
Finding Your Direction with artist Delia DeVer
Working with images from the exhibition, participants will arrange two images side by side, then add color and texture with oil pastels.
Your Future Landscape with artist Gloria Westcott
Imagine and then draw the landscape you envision for the future.
Toddler Tarp with artist Hannah Cassell
Artists five years old and younger will make their own landscape thaumatrope using collage materials and watercolor pencils.
