“The Creative Mind” on April 6

with special guest Norman Brosterman
Tuesday, April 6 from 4 – 5:30 p.m.

Can creativity be taught? This special event explores how education can foster creativity. Pollock-Krasner House director Helen A. Harrison will discuss the educational forces that inspired Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s groundbreaking abstract expressionist art, followed by a tour of the artists’ studio.
After the tour, Norman Brosterman, author of Inventing Kindergarten, will present on how the original kindergarten influenced the creativity of world renowned abstract artists.
Next, education coordinator Joyce Raimondo, who is also author of the Art Explorer book series, will invite participants to share their interpretations of modern art as she demonstrates questioning techniques to promote open-ended creative thinking and visual literacy.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meetings.

“Picturing Loss: Bereavement and Art”

on April 29
Thursday, April 29 from 4 – 5 p.m.
Free on Zoom
How do artists express grief? Explore how world renowned artists Lee Krasner, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, and others express loss in art. Guided by education coordinator Joyce Raimondo, discover how Lee Krasner expressed herself in painting following the untimely death of her husband, Jackson Pollock. Tour the barn studio where Pollock and Krasner made their abstract expressionist art.
Following the presentation and tour, participants are invited to share their own art that expresses bereavement. This special workshop is inspired, in part, by Joyce’s loss of her brother as a teenager and the lifelong consolation art has provided.
