Saturday Family Workshop


Inspired by the work of 2024 The Lay of the Land exhibition artists James Castle and Stephen Shore, students will explore the concept of home and create their own life-size cardboard playhouse. Taking a page from Castle’s use of everyday found materials and recycled surfaces, students will build their dream home out of cardboard boxes and string and will paint on the structures with tempera. Homes will be able to collapse flat for take home use and be easily reassembled for play spaces.

This workshop is free and open to the public, registration recommended to ensure material preparation by instructor.
