Sacred Words

GALLERY: Visit the Sacred Words: The Saint John’s Bible and the Art of Illumination exhibition to discuss process, technique, and visual themes, such as geometric pattern and illustration.

STUDIO: Use egg, pigments, and other materials to mix your own egg tempera paint just like the artists of the Saint John’s Bible. Then paint your own geometric designs or illustrations on a wood ornament that can be displayed at the holidays.

Shaping Self

GALLERY: How do artists address identity in paintings and sculpture? Explore issues of self in works from the permanent collection, such as a portrait of George Washington by Charles Wilson Peale (1779) and a contemporary cast-glass sculpture Chado by Karen LaMonte (2010).

STUDIO: Shape your own self-portrait in clay you create a “ceramic selfie” in the studio. Pieces will be fired at the museum and can be picked up two weeks after your tour.

Picturing Place

GALLERY: From the romantics to the expressionists, discover the ways in which artistic choices create mood and atmosphere within landscape paintings and photographs from the permanent collection.

STUDIO: We’ll work “en plein air” in front of the museum, creating cityscapes of downtown Oklahoma using pastels and large sketching boards. Pieces will be sprayed with fixative and can be taken home at the end of the visit. [During inclement weather, participants will draw from still life in the studio.]

SIGHTED GUIDES

Sighted Guides are available with advance notice to lead gallery experiences for visitors who are blind or have low vision. Experiences last up to one hour.
