Flower Studio

Flower Studio

Opening July 19, with In Bloom: Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism (and for the Member Preview, July 18).

Hamilton Building, Level 1. Fun for all ages with no experience necessary.

Hands-On Activities in the Studio

Find creative inspiration surrounded by abundant blooms in our hands-on artmaking space. Try out art materials, explore design styles, and experiment with techniques.

Capture your impressions of an artfully arranged bouquet. Combine upcycled materials to create a larger-than-life flower box garden. Study the form of flowers and use the shapes to create designs for fashion, furniture, and more.

Weekend Artist Demonstrations

Meet local creatives and watch demonstrations of flower-inspired artmaking every weekend during In Bloom.

Demonstrations will take place from Noon to 3 pm.
