The Masur Museum of Art is excited to announce a new digital art workshop hosted by guest artist, Brandon Virgil! Join us Saturday, February 18th from 11:00am – 12:30pm at the Masur Museum of Art in our Lower River Gallery. Virgil’s digital artwork is featured in our current exhibition: Art on Purpose: Creating a Lasting Legacy.
In this workshop you will learn to use the Procreate app on an iPad with ease. Procreate 101.23 is the perfect app if you are interested in digital painting, sketching, and illustrating. This workshop will teach you how to use the powerful tools and features so that you can bring your imagination to life.

For this month’s Free Children’s Drop-In Art Activity project we’ll be creating Cyanotypes! Cyanotypes are the earliest form of photography. The word Photography literally means drawing with light! Cyanotypes harness the sun’s UV rays to capture a shadow of an object. Come see two amazing examples of artwork made using the Cyanotype process in our current exhibition, the 60th Annual Juried Competition!
