American enthusiasm for John Singer Sargent’s watercolors is a century old, having been nurtured by the artist himself through turn-of-the-century exhibitions. His exploration of watercolor as a medium of expression was innovative and took it from a recreational to a high art. Explore watercolors and the artist for an evening with the exhibition John Singer Sargent: The Watercolors.

Registration is $5, and preregistration is not required. E-mail schools@mfah.org for more information.
