Sensory Sunday Studio
Sensory Sunday Studio: Sunlight Through Trees Faux Stained Glass with Shannon Anderson
FREE with museum admission and for members, with advance registration required.
Join us each Sunday for a fun family art-making activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Explore materials, learn new techniques, and meet other community members while enjoying creative time with your family. Each week features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists to spark the imagination and encourage conversation in response to artworks on view in museum galleries. This program is aimed at families with children ages 5-12, but all are welcome.
Inspired by the exhibition George Inness: Visionary Landscapes, families this week will recreate the effects of sunlight glistening through trees in a faux stained glass artwork using tissue and construction paper.
How is Sensory Sunday Studio different?
- This art-making hour is limited to ten participants at a time, much fewer than our regular Sunday Studio program, and we have additional arts educators and studio assistants on hand.
- We offer fidgets and noise-canceling headphones that can be borrowed upon request.
- Low-sensory zones are available for quiet breaks.
- Families that pre-register will be emailed a pre-visit Social Story and further information.
Shannon obtained her BS in Teaching: Art Education from Keystone College in May of 2018. She began her journey at MAM in 2015 as a counselor in the SummerArt Program, and had such a nice time that she decided to come back for more. Now a museum instructor, Shannon teaches numerous museum classes, such as SummerArt and Drop-in Studio. Her artistic concentration is drawing and painting, however her creativity stretches to all media of art, including ceramics, sculpture, fibers, digital media, and film photography.
