Take a moment to touch, explore, and learn more about the different materials, processes, and techniques artists use to create works of art. Artist’s Toolboxes focus on six different art-making techniques: oil painting; egg tempera and gold-ground painting; ceramics; sculpture; fabrics and fibers; and photography. Each week focuses on a new technique.

This activity is free with Museum admission. On Thursdays, Museum admission is free, courtesy of Shell.
