Planets, Painting and Perception

Join exhibiting artist Talia Roberts in an introduction to oil painting and color theory workshop. Participants will learn about the process of making oil paint by hand while engaging in a simple painting exercise that shows how different color interactions create optical illusions which influence our perception. As a group, we will discuss how color and perception affect our emotions and why that may be helpful for us to know.

The whole family is invited to make art together in these artist-led, free workshops. Each of these fall workshops will be taught by three exhibiting artists from MAM’s exhibition, Imagining the Sacred. Each artist will guide participants through the show and create artwork based on what they see. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a spot. Children under age 7 should be accompanied by an adult. All materials are provided—just bring an open mind.
