Event Description

Ready for some family fun? Come out and learn about how art and science are two sides of the same coin at “Painting Like a Pro!” From 1:00pm to 3:00pm, learn about scientists like George Washington Carver and Percy Julian who, among many things, both dabbled in the manufacturing of paint. We will also be learning about various African American painters and sculptors and making a small artistic creation of our own that can be taken home or given as a gift. Be warned, we will be getting a little bit messy so come dressed for the occasion.
