Bring your curiosity and leave inspired! Museum educators and local teaching artists team up to build meaningful connections with contemporary art, followed by offbeat art “experiments” in our non-traditional classroom your kids will love! No experience is necessary, and all materials are supplied. Our Kids Studio classes are designed to build confidence in creative risk taking with unique materials and processes rather than learning formal techniques for art-making. Along their journey, students learn how to express ideas, solve problems constructively and transform imaginative concept into design. Class size is limited. Art smock provided, please wear comfortable clothes that may get stained.

Curator Tour: Micro/Macro

November 11, 2017, 2:00 pm

Looking to learn a little more than what’s on the label? Get the information at upcoming second Saturday curator tours.

Micro/Macro with Elizabeth Carney, Assistant Curator 

Marilyn Bridges and Jeannette Klute both chose Earth’s natural and human-touched terrain as their subject matter. Micro/Macro illustrates how photographs of the Earth on both an intimate and aerial scale can be disorienting as well as familiar, and the inherent compositional parallels between the work of two very different artists.

Members: FREE; Non-members: Free with gallery admission.

Support the Akron Art Museum and programs like Second Saturday Curator Gallery Talks, become a member of the museum.
