Description: On the first Sunday of the month, join a professional artist to explore the galleries followed by a hands-on workshop inspired by the objects in the exhibition. At MAD, the goal is to make everyone feel comfortable and enthusiastic about the opportunity to learn through their hands while having a good time together in the galleries and studio. This intergenerational workshop will focus on actively engaging with the exhibition, Playing with Fire. There will be fun and thought-provoking discussions on how to interpret and translate the exterior/interior world of glass, by looking at different glass processes and techniques through out the exhibition. Participants will explore sculpture through a tactile lens and participate in a hands-on workshop creating exhibition-inspired sculptures. What role does gravity play in making glass art? How do the artists play with fire to create their work? How do the interior and exterior of a body of work interact? How does color change our perceptions? What role do all of these artistic chioces have on our emotions? The tour and workshop will be appropriate for participants as young as six years old.
