Livestream: Through My Lens, episode 1– Drawing and writing in photos

March 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - March 27, 2020 @ 1:30 pm

We’re embracing the need to innovate how people access MOPA’s art by turning the lens on us.

Starting this Friday, March 27, MOPA is livestreaming weekly shows on a dependable schedule using Facebook Live.

Drawing and writing in Photos

Join us for this easy but endlessly creative activity that you can do at home with things you probably have laying around! This week’s activity is inspired by photo artists that draw and write on their images. This technique allows you to create images inspired by what you see, but limited only by your imagination!

Materials needed:
-A device to take pictures with (Camera, smart phone, or tablet)
-Markers (Crayola markers work great!)
-A window or glass door. Without a screen – but any will work!
-Paper towel and water or window cleaner
-A family member that is quarantined with you – optional

Need a text reminder? Sign up here.
