Seeing Shapes and Colors

Seeing Shapes and Colors invites students to explore shape and color through the Museum's permanent collection and engage in a hands-on artmaking experience.

Josef Albers,Homage to the Square: Wet and Dry, 1960 | Gene Davis, Untitled, 1969

These activities are based on two works from our collection: Homage to the Square: Wet and Dry by Josef Albers, and Untitled by Gene Davis and can be done with any colorful materials you have at home: cardboard, construction paper, tape, crayons, markers, and chalk. Feel free to get creative!
