Event Description

Inspired by our gallery exhibition We’re on the Move: Paintings by Ashanté Kindle & Khari Turner, guest teaching artist Jihan Thomas provides highly textured canvases to our visitors. These canvases, which echo designs and patterns painstakingly realized in Black hairstyles throughout the African diaspora, invite visitors to use patterns and mark-making as the bedrock of their own colorful painting. Whether the result is abstract, figurative, experimental, or just playful, the canvas is yours to take home.

Watch a short video from Jihan Thomas about this activity!

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between NOON and 4:00 PM. Tours of the fully mosaicked basement are part of this program.
