About the PM Atelier Workshop Series:

PM Atelier is a series of hand-on workshops that introduce participants to a range of traditional artist techniques and processes. Every semester we focus on a different theme connected to our current exhibitions or collection works. Our focus for spring of 2018 is water media techniques represented in the Gund Gallery Collection.  Participants have the option of copying works from our collection or exploring the technique with original subject matter. Registration is required and limited to 15 per session.
