Torn Waves and Sailboats
February 21, 2015
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Family Discovery Gallery
Many of the paintings of Winslow Homer were inspired by the sea. Crashing waves or calm waters, people in boats or on the beaches were often his subjects. Choose several shades of blue to begin your project with Kate Baumgart. Create waves that roll across a paper. Add a sailboat skimming along with a brisk wind on a sunny day or maybe a fishing boat heading for safe harbor just before a storm.
Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
