This exciting hands-on painting STEAM workshop for families, led by Artist Richard Gallego, will teach a simple, fun approach to creating a landscape painting using acrylic paints. The surprise? Along the way, participants will learn a bit about physics and philosophy, math and music, and the important role beauty can play in our lives. A brunch reception will occur before the lesson begins. Parents are encouraged to work with their younger children as they follow the instructor’s step by step process while older participants may work on their own. Event attendees must register for this event.
