Saturday Open Studio experiences spark creativity through artistic experimentation and foster connections with art and others. Visitors engage with the Museum's rich collection, special exhibitions, and each other through hands-on, interactive workshops developed in collaboration with Boston artists. Prior experience with art-making is not required.
Objects of art, architectural details, and unique fragments of all kinds form the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s collection of over 10,000 objects from around the world, representing many cultures and periods in history. Where did these objects come from? How did they make their way to the Museum? Channel Isabella's accumulation of objects, ephemera, and bric-a-brac from around the world as you create a work of art for a growing installation of visitor-made fragments in the Studio. Visiting Studio Artist Venetia Dale explores these questions and invites visitors into her creative process during this season's hands-on, Saturday Open Studio workshops.
