Join Benton educators for an interactive two-part workshop exploring Encounters with the Collection: Celebrating Art by Women. Learn more about works of art in the exhibition through close looking and discussion with Assistant Curator/Academic Liaison Amanda Douberley. Then try your hand at paper weaving with Curator of Education Mollie Sixsmith. Weaving, a craft historically associated with women, often features intricate patterns and color palettes. Drawing inspiration from this process, participants will experiment with paper weaving to create a set of colorful notecards. A materials kit will be available at the front desk one week before the program; free for UConn students and Museum members, $5 for non-members.
