In keeping with guidance offered by the University of Chicago regarding the public health situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Smart Museum has decided to postpone the Drawing with Fire and Ash workshop scheduled for March 26. We are working to reschedule for another date, if possible.
This hands-on workshop delves into the mysteries of one of Earth’s most elemental materials: fire.
The program begins with a tour of the special exhibition The Allure of Matter and in-gallery drawing exercises based around gunpowder and ash paintings by Cai Guo-Qiang and Zhang Huan. Then, the artmaking continues in the sculpture garden where participants can draw with fire itself and its byproducts, ash and charcoal. Plus, there will be fire-roasted treats!
FREE. Space and materials may be limited. Open to participants of all skill levels. Please register in advance »
