$15 materials fee. Registration is required and payment must be made in advance. Please email am_visitorservices@harvard.edu or stop by the museums’ admissions desk to register. Space is limited to 12 participants. Minimum age of 14.

In conjunction with the special exhibition Corita Kent and the Language of Pop, Francesca Bewer, research curator for conservation and technical studies, along with guest experts, will explore the art and science behind silkscreening. The workshop will combine close looking at select objects in the collections with hands-on experimentation in the museums’ Materials Lab, a space designed to encourage the investigation of materials and techniques used in works of art.

Corita Kent and the Language of Pop is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and major corporate support from National Grid.
