Join families for a special hands-on workshop during April School Vacation Week for a day of art and exploration. FREE and open to all; no advanced registration required.

 Illuminated Color Workshop: 12 to 4 PM

Use transparent materials to explore effects of color and light and discover artworks in List Projects: Narrative Color that experiment with color effects. Then, create your own modern window hanging inspired by stained glass to see what happens when transparent colors mix and mingle.  

 Family-friendly Tour: 2 PM

View videos in List Projects: Narrative Color with the List’s friendly staff to see how the artists Mareike Bernien and Kerstin Schroedinger use color and light to tell stories in their film Rainbow’s Gravity (2014).

Special Activities: 12 to 4 PM

Explore color together! During your visit to the List, enjoy a book from our special Vacation Week Art Library; and, think outside the box to add your response to our collaborative color board.
