Gimme a (Museum) Break

Tuesday, March 2, 2021,

William D. Adams Gallery, Colby College Museum of Art

Stop by the museum on the first Tuesday of each month for an art-filled break. We’ll have complimentary cookies and milk, an art-making project, sketching in the galleries, and a variety of activities and conversations throughout the museum spaces. 

In March, inspired by the artistic journey of Roy Lichtenstein, we have a variety of activities for burgeoning artists. Sketch works of art in the galleries, or draw a still life arrangement with a teaching artist, who can help you learn how to add shading and value to your work. Bring your headphones or earbuds and listen to jazz music as you visit the exhibition, Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making: 1948–1960. This Student Guide-curated playlist features music that was in the artist’s personal album collection. Enjoy some sweet treats. Take home this month’s Create-It Kit, filled with all the materials you need to experiment with chalk pastels. And, enjoy a Soul-Satisfying Scavenger Hunt, looking for works of art that connect to what you need that day, whether it’s finding a PIECE whose beauty takes your breath away or one that has something to teach you.

This in-person experience is for campus audiences. At this time, the Colby College Museum of Art is open only to current Colby students, faculty, and staff. Events designated for Campus Audiences are available only to members of the campus community participating in the college’s COVID-19 testing program.
