Family ArtLAB: Take Home Edition

Saturday, Feb 27, 2021 - 11:00 AM-3:00 PM

This year Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) is excited to present American sculptor Beverly Pepper’s work and has designed playful artmaking activities for you to make at home. Inspired by the sculptures located in the palm plaza, we will experiment with materials and finishes to evoke some of her techniques.

Have you ever wondered how sculptures get their unique green, blue, or rust colors? That type of coloring or finish is called patina. Inspired by Beverly Pepper’s patinas, we will experiment with watercolor and salt to understand some of the reactions that create those unique colors. Pick up your ArtLAB Home-Kit and create unique patinas.
