Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 PM
Through June 30, 2024 

Drop in for an afternoon of art making at the Carol and Gerry Parker Art Studio. Explore a different activity inspired by art on view each month. All ages and skill levels are welcome! 

April: Eggheaded Ideas 

What kind of Egghead sculpture would you design? Make a miniature model out of clay, inspired by the maquettes Robert Arneson created as part of the process of designing the public sculptures on campus. Come visit us on Picnic Day to see a temporary installation of visitors’ models. 

May: Present, Future 

Make something for the moment and send something in a postcard to the future, capturing contemplations on time sparked by Alicia Eggert’s neon, This Present Moment

June: Some Assemblage Required 

Bring together everyday materials to create an ever-changing temporary sculpture and document your creation through drawing and writing. Check out William T. Wiley’s The Hearings in Deborah Butterfield: P.S. These are not horses for ideas.


All ages and skill levels are welcome — art is for everyone!
