Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Free. Registration is required. Visit our website for registration information. Please include the number of people in your group.

Design and create your own sunprints using broad range of works featured in in UMMA's collection as inspiration. Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century and results in brilliant high-contrast blue & white compositions. We will explore patterns, shapes, and motifs from the Asian, Modern & Contemporary, and Decorative Art collections, and possibly more! UMMA docents will lead a tour through the galleries followed by a hands on workshop with local artist Adrian Deva. Designed for families with children ages 6 and up. Parents must accompany children.

Family Art Studio is generously supported by the University of Michigan Credit Union Arts Adventures Program, UMMA's Lead Sponsor for Student and Family Engagement.
