The Hunter Museum of American Art is temporarily closed to the public but still encouraging an artistic quarantine with a free Facebook Live event on Wednesday, April 22, at 2 p.m.
The 30-minute art project will include assembling artwork made with items in and around your home. Before class begins, go on a nature/yard walk and collect any natural items that catch your eye. You can also look around your home for small items you don't use. You'll need a vessel or container to display your items in, according to museum officials.
Below is a list of items you could gather:
Dried leaves, pods, or flowers
Clumps of moss
Acorns and pine cones
Look at the objects around your home as art materials rather than forgotten bits of ephemera. You'll be surprised at how many art materials you have all around you!
Ceramic container or plate
Choose something you can place objects into or on top of.
