MFAH Sunday Family Zone and Studio: "Active Artists: A Closer Look at American Art"

American Abstract Expressionist Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) created works of art filled with bright colors and energetic lines. Visit the exhibition Line: Making the Mark to discover how artists use positive and negative space, contrasting colors and spirited lines to make their mark.

In the studio, create your own work of art inspired by these works on paper.

Every Sunday, it's ArtTime-FamilyTime at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Look for signs in the main lobbies to tell you which gallery the Family Zone is located in that day. In the Family Zone, spend some time with friendly family educators — sit on a pillow and read, sketch a work of art and get involved in an investigation of a work of art. In the studio, create an art project inspired by original works of art on display in the Family Zone.
