Explore your own creative vision as you take inspiration from artists in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in this two-week long collaboration with Art Education, Tyler School of Art and Architecture. Structured looking, responding, and connecting led by Art Museum Educators builds a foundation for intensive studio practice exploring a variety of materials and media.
