Family Day: Sharing Stories

Every person and every object has a story to tell.
How do we read those stories, record those stories, and then share those stories with others?

Join us on Saturday, November 3rd from 11am – 3pm as we explore the current exhibitions, Morgan Ashcom: What the Living Carry and Learning Curve 11, and consider how stories about the world around us are created and shared from one person to another.

Create interesting designs of found textures and objects through the historical techniques of crayon rubbing and cyanotype, which have traditionally been used to record and disseminate information.

Write and illustrate your own storybook describing a traditional story from your family or an imaginative story based on one of the photos in the current exhibits.

Practice close seeing and reflection as you find small details in a gallery scavenger hunt and consider open-ended questions about the works on display.

Light refreshments will be provided.
