Gallery + Studio: The Sounds Among Us

For ages 6–12 with accompanying adult(s)

  • Workshop led by

    Marcela Florez holds an MFA in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute and has taught at Southern Exposure, LA Commons, the de Young Museum, and BAMPFA. In her own practice, she makes drawings, collages, and prints of historical texts, maps, and imaginary geographies.

Orchestrate a picture of sounds inspired by Caroline Kent’s Art Wall and the architectural features of BAMPFA’s building. Start with shapes; then introduce color and movement as you explore the artist’s multilayered composition of darker “undertones” and brighter “overtones” in oil pastels.
