What do I see?

We’ll look for inspiration in the work on display in the David Simpson and Kimonos: Strappo Prints by Harold Garde exhibitions and examine how light changes color. Each week students will use paint in unique ways to create interesting works of art. This is an excellent class for experimentation.

Do you like to make art? Are you curious about nature? If so, this is the class for you! We will explore the art work exhibited in the museum and then use what we learn to help us draw inspiration from plants and other natural materials to make extraordinary art! Discover all kinds of materials and ways to make art in the studio, including sculpture, painting, collage, and more! We’ll look at different ways to write, too. Join us for the week – or even a day – to explore your own possibilities!

After Wyoming’s long winter, it is worth celebrating the longest day of the year and the official beginning of summer. Every year on the summer solstice, a beam of sunlight illuminates a silver dollar in the center of the Rotunda Gallery at exactly 12 o’clock, noon. Join us for this fun event, and to view the sun through astronomer Ray Martin’s filtered solar telescope, which will be set up on the terrace.
