Explore the artwork of Teaching Artist-in-Residence Jamel Robinson in this workshop designed by the artist. In photo negatives, positive space is light and negative space is dark, the reverse of real life. Through performance, capture the “negative” of your face by posing in front of a light, making a reflected silhouette on the wall, and coloring it black. Then, bring it to life by covering it with layers of light colors.

Recommended for ages 5+. Please note, the last family will be admitted at 3:45pm.
